Computational Theories of Curiosity-Driven Learning [article]

Pierre-Yves Oudeyer
2018 arXiv   pre-print
These frameworks enable us to discuss the bi-directional causal links between curiosity and learning, and to provide new hypotheses about the fundamental role of curiosity in self-organizing developmental  ...  We review both normative and heuristic computational frameworks used to understand the mechanisms of curiosity in humans, conceptualizing the child as a sense-making organism.  ...  In this context where discovery of new strategies and new outcomes becomes the main issue (as opposed to refining a known strategy for getting a known outcome), one can better see how to make sense of  ...

Curious Minds Wonder Alike: Studying Multimodal Behavioral Dynamics to Design Social Scaffolding of Curiosity [chapter]

Tanmay Sinha, Zhen Bai, Justine Cassell
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Since learning is often a social endeavor, social dynamics in collaborative learning may inevitably influence curiosity.  ...  Inspired by a recently proposed theoretical framework that articulates an integrated socio-cognitive infrastructure of curiosity, in this work, we use data-driven approaches to identify fine-grained social  ...  The theoretical motivation for studying these "multimodal behavioral dynamics" (as we will call them) in order to better understand how to design for social scaffolding of curiosity stems from a fundamental  ...
