John Schulman speaks on "Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback" (4/19/23)


John Schulman received a Ph.D. from Berkeley EECS in 2016, advised by Pieter Abbeel. He now leads a team working on ChatGPT and RL from Human Feedback at OpenAI, where he was a co-founder. His previous work includes foundational algorithms of deep RL (TRPO, PPO), generalization in RL (ProcGen), mathematical reasoning by language models (GSM8K), combining RL with retrieval (WebGPT) and studying scaling laws of RL and alignment. In his free time, he enjoys running, jazz piano, and raising chickens.
