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.
