Batch Online Define f c : [0,1] ! {+,–}, f c (x) = sgn(x – c) Simple threshold functions F = {f c | c 2 [0,1]} Batch learnable: Yes Online learnable: ? Adversary does a “random binary search” Each label is equally likely to be +/– E[Regret]=½ for any online algorithm x 1 =.5 + x2x2 – x3x3 + 01 x4x4 – No! x5x5

27
How many labelings? Shattering & VC Sauer’s lemma: # labelings L = O(n VC( F ) ) ) E[Regret(WM,data)] ·

28
Cannot batch learn faster than VC( F ) Shattered set S, |S| = VC( F ), n > 0 X £ Y Batch training set of size n Each x 2 S is not in training set with probability (1-1/n) n ¼ e -1 ) E[Regret(B, )] ¸ c VC( F ) /n

29
Putting it together Transductive online: E[Regret(WM,data)] = Batch: E[Regret(B, )] ¸ Trans. online learnable, batch learnable, finite VC( F ) Almost identical to standard VC bound

30
Learnability conclusions Finite VC( F ) characterizes batch and transductive learnability Open problem: what propertyof F characterizes online learnability (non- transductive) Efficiency!? WM algorithm requires enumeration of F Thm [KK05] : if one can efficiently find lowest error f 2 F, then one can design efficient online learning algorithm

31
Online learning in repeated games

32
Repeated games Example: Rounds i=1,2,…,n: Players simultaneously choose actions Players receive payoff, goal: max total payoff Learning: players need not know opponent/game Feedback: player only finds out payoff of his action and alternatives (not opponent action) 0,0-1,11,-1 -1,10,0-1,1 1,-1-1,10,0 RPS S P R Pl. 1 Pl. 2

33
(Mixed) Nash Equlibrium Each player chooses a dist. over actions Players are optimizing relative to opponent(s) 0,0-1,11,-1 -1,10,0-1,1 1,-1-1,10,0 RPS S P R 1/3

34
Online learning in 0-sum games (Schapire recap) Payoff is A(i,j) for pl. 1, -A(i,j) for pl. 2 Going first is disadvantage: max i min j A(i,j) · min j max i A(i,j) Mixed strategies: max min A(, ) · min max A(, ) Min-max theorem “=”

35
Each player uses weighted majority Maintain weight on each action, initially equal Choose an action proportional to weight (assume payoffs are in [-1,1]) Find out payoffs of each action For each action weight Ã weight*(1 + payoff) Regret = possible improvement (in hindsight) from always playing a single action WM ) regret is low Online learning in 0-sum games (Schapire recap)

36
Actions are (a 1,b 1 ),(a 2,b 2 ),…,(a n,b n ) Regret of pl. 1 is Let be empirical distributions of actions a 1,…,a n and b 1,…,b n, respectively Online learning in 0-sum games (Schapire recap) =

37
WM ) “min-max” theorem max min A(, ) = min max A(, ) = “value of game” Using WM, each player guarantees regret ! 0, regardless of opponent Can beat an idiot in tic-tac-toe Reasonable strategy to use Justifies how such equilibria might arise

38
Justifying equilibrium in games Online learning gives plausible explanation for how equilibrium might arise Nash equilibrium Zero-sum games Unique value Fast and easy to “learn” General-sum games Not unique Fast and easy to “learn”?? Polynomial time algorithm to find one??

39
General-sum games No unique “value” Many very different equilibria Can’t naively improve a “no regret” algorithm (by playing a single mixed strategy) Low regret for both players ; equilibrium 1,10,0 2,2 ABAB A B e.g.

40
General sum games Low regret ; Nash equilibrium, e.g., (1,1),(2,2),(1,1),(2,2),(1,1),(2,2),… 0,0-1,-11, 11,-1 -1,-10,01,-11,1 -1,11,1 -1,11,1 123 3 2 1 4 4

41
Refined notion of regret Can’t naively improve a “no regret” algorithm (by playing a single mixed strategy) Might be able to naively improve it by replacing: “When alg. suggests 1, play 3” 0,0-1,-11, 11,-1 -1,-10,01,-11,1 -1,11,1 -1,11,1 123 3 2 1 4 4

42
Play col. 2 Play row 1 Internal regret Internal regret IR(i,j) is how much we could have improved by replacing all occurrences of action i with action j No internal regret ) correlated equilibrium Calibration ) correlated equilibrium [FosterVohra] Correlated Equilibrium [Aumann] Best strategy to listen to the fish 1,00,10,0 1,00,1 0,01,0 1/6

43
Low internal regret ! correlated eq. Sequence like (1,1),(2,1),(3,2),… Think about this as a distribution No internal regret, correlated eq. Play col. 2 Play row 1 1,00,10,0 1,00,1 0,01,0 1/6 P

44
Online learning in games conclusions Online learning in zero-sum games Weighted majority (low regret) Achieves value of game Online learning in general-sum games Low internal regret Achieves correlated equilibrium Open problems Are there natural dynamics ) Nash Equilibrium Is correlated equilibrium going take over?
