SATBench: A Benchmark of the Human Speed-Accuracy Tradeoff in Recognizing Objects

People take a variable amount of time, 0.1 to 10 s, to recognize an object. The reaction time depends on the stimulus and task, and people can trade off speed for accuracy. That tradeoff is a crucial human skill. Neural networks exhibit high accuracy …

Reinforcement learning and its connections with neuroscience and psychology

Reinforcement learning methods have recently been very successful at performing complex sequential tasks like playing Atari games, Go and Poker. These algorithms have outperformed humans in several tasks by learning from scratch, using only scalar …
