Bridging the gap between regret minimization and best arm identification, with application to A/B tests

State of the art online learning procedures focus either on selecting the best alternative ("best arm identification") or on minimizing the cost (the "regret"). We merge these two objectives by providing the theoretical analysis of cost minimizing algorithms that are also delta-PAC (with a proven guaranteed bound on the decision time), hence fulfilling at the same time regret minimization and best arm identification...
