Dr. Herke van Hoof profile

I am a researcher at the University of Amsterdam, where I focus on reinforcement learning. Currently, I am particularly interested in how reinforcement learning algorithms can make use of rich and structured prior knowledge, as captured in e.g. a knowledge graph, classical algorithms, or physics simulators.
