Estimating the state of a human partner is insufficient for cooperative agents, which should also predict how people adapt their behavior as a consequence of an agent’s action. Computational rationality brings together reinforcement learning and cognitive modelling in pursuit of this goal.


Prof. Antti Oulasvirta leads the User Interfaces research group at Aalto University and the Interactive AI research program at FCAI (Finnish Center for AI). Prior to joining Aalto, he was a Senior Researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics and the Cluster of Excellence on Multimodal Computing and Interaction at Saarland university. He received his doctorate in Cognitive Science from the University of Helsinki in 2006, after which he was a Fulbright Scholar at the School of Information in University of California-Berkeley in 2007-2008 and a Senior Researcher at Helsinki Institute for Information Technology HIIT in 2008-2011. He’s an ELLIS Fellow, and is visiting Scotland as a SICSA Distinguished Visiting Fellow.
