  author={Maya Cakmak and Manuel Lopes},
A helpful teacher can significantly improve the learning rate of a learning agent. Teaching algorithms have been formally studied within the field of Algorithmic Teaching. These give important insights into how a teacher can select the most informative examples while teaching a new concept. However the field has so far focused purely on classification tasks. In this paper we introduce a novel method for optimally teaching sequential decision tasks. We present an algorithm that automatically… CONTINUE READING
