While deep learning produces supervised models with unprecedented predictive performance on many tasks, under typical training procedures, advantages over classical methods emerge only with large datasets. The extreme data-dependence of reinforcement learners may be even more problematic. Millions of experiences sampled from video-games come cheaply, but human-interacting systems can’t afford to waste so much labor. In this talk I will discuss several efforts to increase the  labor-efficiency of learning from human interactions. Specifically, I will cover work on learning dialogue policies, deep active learning for natural language processing , learning from noisy singly-labeled data, and active learning with partial feedback.
