October 2022

  • Gave two talks:  Deep Active Inference (CoCoSci group at MIT) and Threat-related learning in anxious subjects (Liz Phelps group at Harvard)
  • Awarded WiML NeurIPs 2022 corporate travel grant to attend NeurIPs. Woo, looking forward to meeting old and new friends in New Orleans!
  • Back at UCL - grateful for the opportunity to visit Sam's lab! 

September 2022

  • Gave two talks: Generatives models with structured priors (Gershmn Lab at Harvard) and Learning Agent Preferences (Gu lab at Mt. Sinai). Finally, got to visit New York!! 
  • Hosted an internal Deep Active inference symposium with Lancelot Da Costa! 

August 2022

  • Presented our new work 'Modelling non-reinforced preferences using selective attention at COLLAs [ paper ]. This work extends our previous work on preference learning using Hebbian learning rules. Plus side: got to see Montreal; a truly wonderful experience.
