Get insights from Lirio behavioral science and AI experts on how to move people toward healthy behaviors and actions that drive positive outcomes.
Our BeSci briefs cover the behavioral science solutions Lirio uses to optimize the content, channel, and timing of behavioral interventions and the behavioral biases that inform them.
Anticipated Regret: Why Pondering an Unpleasant Future Can Change Your Behavior Now
It’s New Year’s Day, 2022, and you just woke up. You pour yourself a cup of coffee and settle into your favorite spot on the couch. As you gaze out the window, you feel a sense of calm and hope. There’s a brand-new year ahead of you. As you think about what lies...
Curiosity – Lirio Bias Brief
Lirio delivers results by drawing insights from hundreds of behavioral biases and theories. Our Bias Brief series walks through specific biases one by one, each thoughtfully selected from our long list of insights. Read on for a brief rundown on the chosen bias,...
Availability Bias – Lirio Bias Brief
Availability Bias is a mental shortcut that leads people to assume that things they can more easily recall are more likely to occur. As a result, people tend to weigh their judgments toward more recent information.
Temporal Landmark Effect – Lirio Bias Brief
Dates that stand out as being more meaningful—such as the start of a new week or financial quarter, a birthday, or a holiday— signal the start of a new, distinct time period. These “temporal landmarks” make people more motivated to pursue their goals because specific dates make it easier for them to mentally separate their past imperfections and failures from their future self.

Lirio Research: A Novel Policy Comparison Metric for Reinforcement Learning
Lirio’s Behavioral Reinforcement Learning Lab (BReLL) recently published a paper describing a new approach, the Limited Data Estimator, for comparing reinforcement learning policies using limited historical data.
Lirio Research: Introducing A New Form of Machine Learning Optimization
Lirio’s AI Research team recently developed a novel adaptive stochastic gradient-free (ASGF) approach for solving some of the most difficult optimization challenges in machine learning. This innovative optimization algorithm, which is simple to implement and does not require careful fine-tuning, offers significant improvements when compared to existing state-of-the-art approaches.
