Joel Z. Leibo is a research scientist at DeepMind. He obtained his PhD in 2013 from MIT where he worked on the computational neuroscience of face recognition with Tomaso Poggio. Nowadays, Joel's research is aimed at the following questions:
- How can we get deep reinforcement learning agents to perform complex cognitive behaviors like cooperating with one another in groups?
- How should we evaluate the performance of deep reinforcement learning agents?
- How can we model processes like cumulative culture that gave rise to unique aspects of human intelligence?
