Patriots-Titans Ups & Downs: An imperfect but exciting win over the No. 1 seed

The Patriots beat the top-seeded team in the AFC by 23 points, but even Bill Belichick admitted they weren’t perfect. It took the Titans beating themselves and a handful of clutch plays in order for the Patriots to pull away in this one, a 36-13 win that vaulted the Pats back into first place in the AFC East with a chance to claim the No. 1 seed in the conference.

A Perfect End To An Imperfect Game, Week For Gators

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — If one play can sum up a game, then go with the failed attempt at an onside kick in the final minute by Florida State kicker Parker Grothaus. Gators and Seminoles should be able to laugh at that one together in coming years when reminiscing about Saturday's wacky, mistake-filled Sunshine Showdown on a beautiful afternoon at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

A restaurant that turns ugly produce into gourmet smoothie and salad bowls is expanding again

How many times have you visited the grocery store and noticed that nearly every single piece of produce looks superficial and shiny?. Apples are polished to the point they sparkle, timed sprinklers evenly mist the organic produce section, and it’s rare to find a yellow banana that shows its first signs of spots, or the odd disfigured carrot you might get if you pulled one up straight from the soil.

One More Step Towards Reality: Cooperative Bandits with Imperfect Communication

The cooperative bandit problem is increasingly becoming relevant due to its applications in large-scale decision-making. However, most research for this problem focuses exclusively on the setting with perfect communication, whereas in most real-world distributed settings, communication is often over stochastic networks, with arbitrary corruptions and delays. In this paper, we study cooperative bandit learning under three typical real-world communication scenarios, namely, (a) message-passing over stochastic time-varying networks, (b) instantaneous reward-sharing over a network with random delays, and (c) message-passing with adversarially corrupted rewards, including byzantine communication. For each of these environments, we propose decentralized algorithms that achieve competitive performance, along with near-optimal guarantees on the incurred group regret as well. Furthermore, in the setting with perfect communication, we present an improved delayed-update algorithm that outperforms the existing state-of-the-art on various network topologies. Finally, we present tight network-dependent minimax lower bounds on the group regret. Our proposed algorithms are straightforward to implement and obtain competitive empirical performance.
