On Co-Learning

At the core of the ARCOL project resides the notion of co-learning.

We see in this notion the idea that both a system and a human-user could learn cooperatively. The system learns how to provide the user with the appropriate sequence of movement tasks to perform, and the human-user learns through this adapted curriculum.

Until here, co-learning is great, and showing its potential is an objective of the ARCOL project. However, it is also important to reflect on possibilities such as non-virtuous co-adaptation processes, user boredom, or unacceptability of a technogolical assistance. This second aspect is also an objective in the project.


Antoine Loriette joined ARCOL as Post-Doc

Antoine Loriette obtained his PhD from Glasgow University, working with John Williamson. His research focuses on movement-based interaction, and computational interaction.

Antoine joined ARCOL for 12 months working on the first building block of the project: setting-up a proof of concept study showing the benefit of reinforcement-based curriculum learning in motor skill acquisition.
