Designing Curiosity for Thinking Machines and Inquisitive Humans | Pasadena

Curiosity is a powerful motivator that enhances learning, memory and engagement, but it's far more sophisticated than previously understood. Recent neuroscience research reveals that curiosity is not a single cognitive phenomenon, but rather a five-dimensional scale. Furthermore, there are four unique subgroups of people with overlapping but distinct motivations.

In this talk, Julian Scaff introduces a "curiosity matrix" that can be used as a powerful tool for designing different types of curiosity in machine learning systems that can make AI more effective at solving different problems and engaging with a diverse group of human users.

C++ API Design post-C++11

"Everyone" knows the guiding principle for type design in C++: aim for Regular types (aka "Do what ints do"). As it turns out, with the addition of rvalue-references, reference-qualification, and move-semantics in C++11, there are a host of new considerations. There are also non-Regular type designs showing in the standard (std::string_view), and other classes of design that have shown themselves to be valuable. This talk will cover rvalue-reference idioms and API design, as well as a brief taxonomy of type properties and good type design."
