In our conversation, we explore his interest in understanding the brain and working towards artificial general intelligence through techniques like meta-learning, few-shot learning and imitation learning. In particular, we dig into a couple of his team’s NeurIPS papers: “Playing hard exploration games by watching YouTube,” and “One-Shot high-fidelity imitation: Training large-scale deep nets with RL.”
