Bounded optimality/Griffiths: You trade off the time you spend looking with the difference it makes in the quality of the outcome. Bounded optimality bridges the gap between rationality and heuristics. By describing behavior as the result of a rational choice about how much to think, it provides a generalizable theory - that is, one that can be applied in new situations. Sometimes the simple strategies that have been identified as heuristics that people follow turn out to be bounded-optimal solutions. So rather than condemning the heuristics that people use as irrational, we can think of them as a rational response to constraints on computation. >Decision theory/Griffiths, >Reinforcement Learning/Griffiths, >Artificial Intelligence/Griffiths, >Superintelligence/Griffiths.
