Pierre-Yves Oudeyer : Inria – French Académie des Sciences Young Researcher Award

Can artificial intelligence help us to better understand natural intelligence? Pierre-Yves Oudeyer cultivates a vision of artificial intelligence that is as close as possible to the living world. A vision in which machines are at the service of humans. His guiding principle is looking to mechanisms of intrinsic motivation to enable humans and machines to progress in autonomous learning.
