Metareasoning and Bounded Rationality

Shlomo Zilberstein

What role does metareasoning play in models of bounded rationality? We examine the various existing computational approaches to bounded rationality and divide them into three classes. Only one of these classes significantly relies on a metareasoning component. We explore the characteristics of this class of models and argue that it offers desirable properties. In fact, many of the effective approaches to bounded rationality that have been developed since the early 1980's match this particular paradigm. We conclude with some open research problems and challenges.
