Matthew Taylor
Ph.D. Alumni
Matt's Ph.D. dissertation focused on transfer learning, a novel method for speeding up reinforcement learning through knowledge reuse. His dissertation received an honorable mention in the competition for the IFAAMAS-08 Victor Lesser Distinguished Dissertation Award. After UT, Matt moved to The University of Southern California to work with Milind Tambe as a post-doc, pursuing his interests in multi-agent systems.
