Reinforcement Learning for Education: Opportunities and Challenges

Neil Heffernan, Goran Radanovic, Anna Rafferty and Adish Singla

Abstract: This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the broad areas of reinforcement learning (RL) and education (ED). The workshop will focus on two thrusts: Exploring how we can leverage recent advances in RL methods to improve the state-of-the art technology for ED. Identifying unique challenges in ED that are beyond the current methodology, but can help nurture technical innovations and next breakthroughs in RL.
