  Title: Exploration versus Exploitation
-------------------------------------------------
Imagine yourself at your favorite restaurant trying to decide what to 
order. Well, you can either order the lasagna which you have tried and 
enjoyed many times, or you can try something new. Of course, trying a new 
dish comes with a risk; You may not like what you have ordered. This is 
known as the Exploration versus Exploitation dilemma. In this talk, I will 
discuss the importance of problems within the Exploration-Exploitation 
framework, and review some of the existing work on a fundamental instance 
of such problems called the "Multiarmed Bandits Problem".
