Safe Learning and Control with L1 Adaptation

February 26, 2021, 2:00 - 4:00 pm Naira Hovakimyan W. Grafton and Lillian B. Wilkins Professor of Mechanical Science and Engineering at UIUC. Abstract Learning-based control paradigms have seen many success stories with various robots and co-robots in recent years. However, as these robots prepare to enter the real world, operating safely in the presence … Continue reading Safe Learning and Control with L1 Adaptation

Stochastic Approximation: Some New Wine in Old Bottle

October 06, 2020 - 11:00 AM https://bluejeans.com/151197147 Vivek S. Borkar Indian Institute of Technology Bombay Abstract This talk will give an overview of old and new results and directions in stochastic approximation algorithms, broadly split into basic theory, variants, and applications. Central to all this will be the 'o.d.e' (for 'Ordinary Differential Equations') approach to … Continue reading Stochastic Approximation: Some New Wine in Old Bottle

Mean Field Differential Games with Elements of Robustness

September 04, 2020 - 02:00 PM https://bluejeans.com/671208563?src=join_info Tamer Basar University of Illinois, Urbana Abstract Perhaps the most challenging aspect of research on multi-agent dynamical systems, formulated as non-cooperative stochastic differential/dynamic games (SDGs) with asymmetric dynamic information structures is the presence of strategic interactions among agents, with each one developing beliefs on others in the absence … Continue reading Mean Field Differential Games with Elements of Robustness
