This seminar will cover different approaches to robot control divided into two tracks: Behavior Synthesis (BS) and Transfer Learning in Reinforcement Learning (RL). The first track studies different approaches to generate behavior models for an agent. The second track investigates the state of the art in reinforcement learning to learn a policy to control the robots actions.
Students of Master programs can participate in this seminar. For Master Informatik students, the seminar belongs to the fields Data and Information Management. Certain topics may also be suitable for the field Theoretical Computer Science, please contact us beforehand. For Master Software Systems Engineering (SSE) students, it belongs to the field Data and Information Management. As above, some topics may qualify for the area Theoretical Foundations of SSE, contact us beforehand.
Places are allocated centrally. In your application please clearly indicate your prior knowledge of the subject (see the requirements section). We won’t be able to consider your application otherwise. The number of available slots is limited.
Knowledge of the fundamental concepts of Artificial Intelligence is strongly recommended, an understanding of knowledge representation is also quite helpful. Basic knowledge of robotics, and applied machine learning will be an advantage.
- The introductory meeting will take place in the beginning of the semester, the exact date will be announced. Participation is compulsory.
- Besides writing your own term paper, you are asked to review other students’ term papers. It will involve strict deadlines. Meeting these deadlines is mandatory.
