The Reinforcement Learning Group in MSR-AI is passionate about advancing both RL-theory and applications. We focus on foundational advances in Generalization, Memory, Exploration, and Counterfactual Learning. Our application domains include Interactive Fiction games, Xbox games, and Web crawling.
We collaborate closely with the wider reinforcement learning effort at MSR including groups in Cambridge, Montreal, and New York.
