Human learning in complex environments critically depends on the ability to perform model selection, that is to assess competing hypotheses about the structure of the environment. Importantly, information is accumulated continuously, which necessitates an online process for model selection. While model selection in human learning has been explored extensively, it is unclear how memory systems support learning in an online setting. We formulate a semantic learner and demonstrate that online… CONTINUE READING
