The meetup #15 of Papers We Love Bucharest will have two speakers in tandem because of the two competencies required by the subject: computational and biological! We'll present and discuss different fascinating parallels between reinforcement learning and neuroscience, keeping the level introductory on both. It's a nice opportunity to understand what is reinforcement learning and how some of its core parts have a correspondence in neuroscience.

Original Paper:

K, Doya, "Reinforcement learning: Computational theory and biological mechanisms (", HFSP Journal, 1(1):3-40, 2007
