Euclideanizing Flows: Diffeomorphic Reduction for Learning Stable Dynamical Systems

  title={Euclideanizing Flows: Diffeomorphic Reduction for Learning Stable Dynamical Systems},
  author={Muhammad Asif Rana and Anqi Li and Dieter Fox and Byron Boots and Fabio Tozeto Ramos and Nathan D. Ratliff},
Robotic tasks often require motions with complex geometric structures. We present an approach to learn such motions from a limited number of human demonstrations by exploiting the regularity properties of human motions e.g. stability, smoothness, and boundedness. The complex motions are encoded as rollouts of a stable dynamical system, which, under a change of coordinates defined by a diffeomorphism, is equivalent to a simple, hand-specified dynamical system. As an immediate result of using…

Learning High Dimensional Demonstrations Using Laplacian Eigenmaps

A novel methodology to learn a stable robot control law driven by dynamical systems that enables to model highly nonlinear dynamics in high dimension and overcomes alternative techniques in both precision of reconstruction and number of parameters required for the embedding.

Reactive Motion Generation on Learned Riemannian Manifolds

It is argued that Riemannian manifolds may be learned via human demonstrations in which geodesics are natural motion skills, and proposed technique for facilitating on-the-fly end-effector/multiple-limb obstacle avoidance by reshaping the learned manifold using an obstacleaware ambient metric.

Robot Skill Adaptation via Soft Actor-Critic Gaussian Mixture Models

The Soft Actor- Critic Gaussian Mixture Model (SAC-GMM), a novel hybrid approach that learns robot skills through a dynamical system and adapts the learned skills in their own trajectory distribution space through interactions with the environment, is proposed.

This study provides a generalization error bound for Hamiltonian neural networks by deriving an estimate of the covering number of the gradient of the multi-layer perceptron, which is the key ingredient of the model.



Signaling Properties of Hyaluronan Receptors*

The study of murine cardiac cells derived from hyaluronan synthase 2 (HAS2) knockout mice has provided the most convincing evidence for a signaling capability of hyAluronan, and results suggest that hy aluronan signals through Ras to regulate motility are consistent with previous studies showing that exogenous hyaltonanreceptor interactions regulate Ras signaling.

A unified model of cancer progression is proposed in which CSCs assume a central role in both tumorigenesis and metastasis, and this model will lead to novel therapeutic strategies against metastatic cancer.
