Cognitive Model Priors for Predicting Human Decisions
Why This Is Interesting

The work elaborates on previous attempts to outperform cognitive models developed by social scientists by ML algorithms. The authors use the BEAST model to create a synthetic dataset and internalize its weight in a neural network. Unlike previous attempts, the model can work only on raw data without exhaustive feature engineering and achieve unseen performance.

Discussion Points
  • What is the BEAST model
  • synthetic dataset for human choice decisions: advantages and disadvantages
  • application of cognitive model priors in ML products
  • Graph NN for predicting human decisions
