About the episode
Louis Kirsch is a third-year Ph.D. student at the Swiss AI Lab IDSIA, advised by Prof. Jürgen Schmidhuber. He received his B.Sc. in IT-Systems-Engineering from Hasso-Plattner-Institute (1st rank) and his Master of Research in Computational Statistics and Machine Learning from University College London (1st rank). His research focus is on meta-learning algorithms for reinforcement learning, specifically meta-learning algorithms that are general-purpose, introduced by his work on MetaGenRL. Louis has organized the BeTR-RL workshop at ICLR 2020, was an invited speaker at Meta Learn NeurIPS 2020, and won several GPU compute awards for the Swiss national supercomputer Piz Daint.
