JetBrains Research unites scientists working in challenging new disciplines

Lifelong Learning

Human brain is able to collect knowledge for future use in novel tasks. In machine learning and reinforcement learning, this knowledge transfer is still an unsolved problem.

At the seminar we will discuss various approaches to this continual or lifelong learning, focusing on deep learning approaches such as PG-ELLA [1], Policy Distillation [2], Learning without Forgetting [3], and Pseudo-Rehearsal [4].
