When developing skills on a physical robot, it is appealing to turn to modern machine learning methods in order to automate the process. However, when no accurate simulator exists for the type of motion in question, all learning must occur on the physical robot itself. In such a case, there is a high premium on quick, efficient learning (specifically, learning with low sample complexity). Recent results in learning locomotion have demonstrated the feasibility of learning fast walks directly on… CONTINUE READING
