Speech Title: Skill Learning in Dynamic Scene for Robot Operations

Abstract: The robot AI is dominated by physical interaction in closed-loop form. It not only emphasizes the perception and processing of simulated human brain information, but also emphasizes brain body cooperation to solve the dynamic, interactive and adaptive problems of behavior learning in dynamic scene. As the core of robot AI, skill learning for robot operations is a difficult and hot issue in current research. In view of the problems that the existing skill learning methods do not make use of the teaching samples efficiently and cannot achieve efficient strategy learning, and the imitation learning algorithm is sensitive to the teaching preference characteristics and the local operation space. This talk studies the skill learning for robot operations in the complex dynamic environment, and proposes skill learning framework based on human preference. By using the guidance of the existing poor teaching samples, this talk proposes an optimization method of reinforcement learning based on teaching imitation, which improves the sample utilization rate and strategy learning performance of skill learning in high-dimensional space. Finally, the future development of robot skill learning is prospected.
