Objective Learning for Autonomous Systems

April 9, 2021 - 2:00 pm in Bluejeans: https://bluejeans.com/851024140 Shaoshuai Mou Purdue University Abstract Autonomous systems especially those driven under optimal control are usually associated with objective functions to describe their goals/tasks in specific missions. Since they are usually unknown in practice especially for complicated missions, learning such objective functions is significant to autonomous systems … Continue reading Objective Learning for Autonomous Systems
