Online Fast Adaptation and Knowledge Accumulation (OSAKA): a New Approach to Continual Learning

Massimo Caccia, Pau Rodríguez, Oleksiy Ostapenko, Fabrice Normandin, Min Lin, Lucas Page-Caccia, Issam Hadj Laradji, Irina Rish, Alexandre Lacoste, David Vázquez, Laurent Charlin
2020 Neural Information Processing Systems  
We show in an empirical study that Continual-MAML is better suited to the new scenario than the aforementioned methodologies including standard continual learning and meta-learning approaches.  ...  Continual learning agents experience a stream of (related) tasks. The main challenge is that the agent must not forget previous tasks and also adapt to novel tasks in the stream.  ...  Acknowledgments and Disclosure of Funding Laurent Charlin is supported through a CIFAR AI Chair and grants from NSERC, CIFAR, IVADO, Samsung, and Google.  ...

Learn Continually, Generalize Rapidly: Lifelong Knowledge Accumulation for Few-shot Learning [article]

Xisen Jin, Bill Yuchen Lin, Mohammad Rostami, Xiang Ren
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We examine how the generalization ability is affected in the continual learning setup, evaluate a number of continual learning algorithms, and propose a novel regularized adapter generation approach.  ...  The ability to continuously expand knowledge over time and utilize it to rapidly generalize to new tasks is a key feature of human linguistic intelligence.  ...  Motivated by this observation, we study whether NLP models could accumulate generalizable knowledge continuously over a sequence of tasks and learn to generalize to new tasks rapidly (i.e., with few examples  ...

Auditory Streaming as an Online Classification Process with Evidence Accumulation

Dana Barniv, Israel Nelken, Joel Snyder
2015 PLoS ONE  
Evidence for segregation is accumulated during the integration phase and vice versa; a switch to the opposite percept occurs stochastically based on this evidence.  ...  To account together for bistability and positive correlation between subsequent durations, we suggest that streaming is a consequence of an evidence accumulation process.  ...  We thank Misha Tsodyks for his support and useful comments.

What is value—accumulated reward or evidence?

Karl Friston, Rick Adams, Read Montague
2012 Frontiers in Neurorobotics  
This contrasts with normative models of optimal control and reinforcement learning, which assume the existence of a value function that explains behavior, where (somewhat tautologically) behavior maximizes  ...  This implies that a sufficient explanation for valuable behavior is the accumulation of evidence for internal models of our world.  ...  We would like to thank our three reviewers for very helpful comments and guidance.  ...
