Utility function plays an important role in human decision-making. However, those utility functions are internal to humans, lack a meaningful unit of measure, and are different across individuals. As a result, it remains difficult to estimate human utility of different tasks with a general computational framework. Given what you have learned from the reading list, discuss possible ways to learn and represent human utility and their advantages / disadvantages in data collection, generalization, and efficiency.
