Behavior analysis: Exploration vs exploitation


I just observed an interesting conversation in a chat group about the exploration vs exploitation tradeoff.

I think it might be interesting to tag the data with subjects (programming, AI/ML, philosophy, biotechnology, etc.) and then compare how much time is spent on those different subjects as a measurement of how “exploring” one is when using their computer vs how much they “exploit” what they already know (i.e. work in an area where they are professionals).
