AI exploration shifts focus from rewards to curiosity

(Tech Xplore)—A paper titled "Curiosity Driven Exploration by Self-Supervised Prediction" has been prepared by a team of researchers at University of California Berkeley (on arXiv).


Curiosity (from Latin curiosus "careful, diligent, curious," akin to cura "care") is an emotion related to natural inquisitive behavior such as exploration, investigation, and learning, evident by observation in human and many animal species. The term can also be used to denote the behavior itself being caused by the emotion of curiosity. As this emotion represents a drive to know new things, curiosity is the fuel of science and all other disciplines of human study[citation needed].
