While much computational work on fiction has focused on works in the literary canon, user-created fanfiction presents a unique opportunity to study an ecosystem of literary production and consumption, embodying qualities both of large-scale literary data (55 billion tokens) and also a social network (with over 2 million users). We present several empirical(More)
Intuitively, obedience – following the order that a human gives – seems like a good property for a robot to have. But, we humans are not perfect and we may give orders that are not best aligned to our preferences. We show that when a human is not perfectly rational then a robot that tries to infer and act according to the human’s underlying preferences can(More)
While optimal metareasoning is notoriously intractable, humans are nonetheless able to adaptively allocate their computational resources. A possible approximation that humans may use to do this is to only metareason over a finite set of cognitive systems that perform variable amounts of computation. The highly influential " dual-process " accounts of human(More)
Online, open access, high-quality textbooks are an exciting new resource for improving the online learning experience. Because textbooks contain carefully crafted material written in a logical order, with terms defined before use and discussed in detail, they can provide foundational material with which to buttress other resources. As a first step towards(More)
