How Do Humans Handle the Dilemma of Exploration and Exploitation in Sequential Decision Making?

Naoya Namiki, Kuratomo Oyo, Tatsuji Takahashi
2015 Proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (formerly BIONETICS)  
Softmax randomly chooses options with the selection probability that is a monotonous function of the estimated value. However, it needs a kind of pseudo-random number generator in human's mind.  ...  In brain science, it is known that human brain estimates options comparatively, and the average behavior correlates to the Softmax action selection rule.  ...  Epsilon First The epsilon first policy is a strategy to select totally randomly until the determined step. The step satisfies , where is the total number of steps. is set at .  ...

Active learning for object classification: from exploration to exploitation

Nicolas Cebron, Michael R. Berthold
2008 Data mining and knowledge discovery  
We present a new self-controlled exploration/exploitation strategy to select data points to be labeled by a domain expert where the potential of each data point is computed based on a combination of its  ...  A new Prototype Based Active Learning (PBAC) algorithm for classification is introduced. We compare the results to other active learning approaches on several benchmark datasets.  ...  In Sect. 2, we will shortly revise the concept of active learning which leads us to a selection strategy in Sect. 3.  ...

Model Migration with Epsilon Flock [chapter]

Louis M. Rose, Dimitrios S. Kolovos, Richard F. Paige, Fiona A. C. Polack
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we describe Epsilon Flock, a modelto-model transformation language tailored for model migration that contributes a novel algorithm for relating source and target model elements.  ...  There is limited support, however, for model migration -a development activity in which instance models are updated in response to metamodel evolution.  ...  In Section 5, we apply Epsilon Flock to two examples of co-evolution for comparison with existing approaches.  ...
