Other Feedback based Learning Frameworks Two axes of variation: modelling of environment and feedback Online Learning: some modelling of environment and full feedback Losses are simple functions over linear models (can be made non linear though) At each step the loss function itself is given to us: full information Models are agnostic: no realizability assumptions are made Multi-armed Bandits: weak modelling of environment, weak feedback Often no assumptions made on nature of loss function Limited feedback: only loss value on played action made available Contextual bandits try to model loss function but make realizability assumptions Reinforcement Learning: Strong modelling of environment, weak feedback Environment modelled as a state space with adaptive stochastic transitions Reward functions modeled as functions of state space and action Limited feedback available: need to learn, state space as well as reward function 20
