They use the multi-armed bandit framework where each arm is an Active Learning strategy.
The core RL algorithm used is [EXP4.P](https://arxiv.org/abs/1002.4058) which is itself based on EXP4 (**Exp**onential weighting for **Exp**loration and **Exp**lotation with **Exp**erts). They make only slight adjustments to the reward function.

Beats all other techniques most of the time and make sure that in the long run we use the best strategy.
