Learning When to Take Advice: A Statistical Test for Achieving A Correlated Equilibrium

06/13/2012 ∙ by Greg Hines, et al. ∙ 0

We study a multiagent learning problem where agents can either learn via repeated interactions, or can follow the advice of a mediator who suggests possible actions to take. We present an algorithmthat each agent can use so that, with high probability, they can verify whether or not the mediator's advice is useful. In particular, if the mediator's advice is useful then agents will reach a correlated equilibrium, but if the mediator's advice is not useful, then agents are not harmed by using our test, and can fall back to their original learning algorithm. We then generalize our algorithm and show that in the limit it always correctly verifies the mediator's advice.
