Coffee Chat: Robot Learning
School life is more interesting than ever. With no courses or TA duties, I have full luxury to learn new trends in robot learning. Amir massoud gave a talk on his ICRA 2009 paper in our group meeting today. Afterwards, we headed to SUB (the Student Union's Building @ Univ. of Alberta) for a coffee and a nice chat about robot learning, visual servoing, parametric vs. non-parametric, and model-based vs. model-free reinforcement learning.
In addition to Amir massoud's reading list on estimation and control of robotic systems, I added the following papers to my to-read list:
- Sethu Vijayakumar, Aaron D'Souza and Stefan Schaal, Incremental Online Learning in High Dimensions, Neural Computation, vol. 17, no. 12, pp. 2602-2634 (2005). [pdf] [More detailed version of the paper Tech Report EDI-INF-RR-0284 of UEDIN]
- Manuel Lopes and Bruno Damas, A Learning Framework for Generic Sensory-Motor Maps, Proc. IEEE/RSJ Intl. Conf. on Intelligent Robotics and Systems, pp. 1533-1538, San Diego, CA, USA, Oct 29 - Nov 2, 2007. [pdf]
