M. Sc. Heinke Hihn

I am a research associate and Ph.D. student within the Learning Systems Group headed by Prof. Dr. Dr. Daniel A. Braun.

Research

    I work on learning and optimization problems in artificial learning systems that have to cope with limited resources, such as time and memory. Mainly i am using methods and algorithms from the areas of

    • Information-theoretic Bounded Rationality
    • Reinforcement Learning
    • Monte Carlo Optimization
    • Meta Learning
