Good stuff!

Catching up with our backlog we explore sparse linear stochastic bandits. Elimination on the hypercube, online regression to bandits and more.

In the last two posts we considered stochastic linear bandits, when the actions are vectors in the $d$-dimensional Euclidean space. According to our previous calculations, under the condition that the expected reward of all the actions are in a fixed…

Ellipsoidal Confidence Sets for Least-Squares Estimators using Laplace's method and other beauties.

Continuing the previous post, here we give a construction for confidence bounds based on ellipsoidal confidence sets. We also put things together and show bound on the regret of the UCB strategy that uses the constructed confidence bounds. Constructing…

In the post on adversarial bandits we proved two high probability upper bounds on the regret of Exp-IX. Specifically, we showed: Theorem: There exists a policy $\pi$ such that for all $\delta \in (0,1)$ for any adversarial environment $\nu\in [0,1]^{nK}$,…
