AI's can also learn from artificial curiosity


About the research

In us, humans, curiosity is a driving force for learning. But did you know that AI robots can also benefit from curiosity, that is, 'artificial curiosity'? Computer scientist Louis Bagot (Imec - UAntwerp) explains how this works and why it is a good idea to tell AI robots to experiment and have fun.

Louis Bagot got his first Science&Vie Kids magazine when he was about 12, and kept reading the series in increasing levels of complexity until he was 18. The magazine sparked an interest in science that motivated him to enter an engineering school in France. Around that time, the YouTube maths channel 3blue1brown triggered a major enthusiasm not only towards mathematics, but also towards the art of explaining and teaching. In parallel, the breakthrough of DeepMind's AlphaGo beating the Go World Champion with Reinforcement Learning completed the picture: he is now researching Reinforcement Learning and completing his Ph.D. to become a University Professor.
