  • Last week, I wrote an analysis of Reward Is Enough, a paper by scientists at DeepMind.
  • Nature gives preference to lifeforms that are better fit to survive in their environments.
  • In their paper, DeepMind’s scientists make the claim that the reward hypothesis can be implemented with reinforcement learning algorithms, a branch of AI in which an agent gradually develops its behavior by interacting with its environment.
