About this Episode

Today we're joined by Jason Gauci, a Software Engineering Manager at Facebook AI. In our conversation with Jason, we explore their Reinforcement Learning platform, Re-Agent (Horizon). We discuss the role of decision making and game theory in the platform and the types of decisions they're using Re-Agent to make, from ranking and recommendations to their eCommerce marketplace. Jason also walks us through the differences between online/offline and on/off policy model training, and where Re-Agent sits in this spectrum. Finally, we discuss the concept of counterfactual causality, and how they ensure safety in the results of their models.
