Richard's work focuses on augmenting our understanding of what it means to be intelligent through computational models of learning. He seeks to identify the general computing principles that underlie intelligence and goal-directed behaviour in order to improve the performance and reliability of learning systems.
Richard explores ways of representing human knowledge in terms of experience, seeking to reduce the dependence on manually-encoded knowledge.
