Thomas Gilbert Receives Inaugural Simons Institute Law and Society Fellowship

07 Aug 2020

Thomas Krendl Gilbert has been awarded the Simons Institute Law and Society Fellowship for its upcoming research program on Theory of Reinforcement Learning (Fall 2020).

The Simons Institute brings together the world’s leading researchers in theoretical computer science and related fields, as well as the next generation of outstanding young scholars, to explore deep unsolved problems about the nature and limits of computation. The Law and Society Fellowships enhance Institute programs that address technologies with profound impacts on human society and with implications for ethics, law, and policy, by supporting a researcher who is focused on addressing the broader societal implications of the techniques and technologies addressed within these programs. Tom will participate in the Institute’s programs, including a talk on his ongoing dissertation work, and engage in other structured activities.
