Pierre-Luc Bacon, Jean Harb, and Doina Precup are awarded the prestigious AAAI 2017 Outstanding Student Paper Award

Jan. 3, 2017

The AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (formerly the AAAI National Conference on Artificial Intelligence) honors papers that exemplify the highest standards in technical contribution and exposition. During the blind review process, members of the Program Committee recommend papers to consider for the Outstanding Paper Award. A subset of the Senior Program Committee, carefully chosen to avoid conflicts of interest, reviews all nominated papers and selects the winning paper(s).

There were 2590 submissions this year at the conference and 638 papers were accepted, for an acceptance rate below 25%.

Read their winning paper, "The Option-Critic Architecture".
