UC Berkeley’s RL-Powered SOLAR Accelerates Robotic Learning

Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR) has introduced a new reinforcement learning (RL) method, Stochastic Optimal Control with Latent Representations (SOLAR), which can help robots quickly learn tasks such as stacking blocks or pushing objects from visual inputs.

BAIR Open-Sources Popular DeepMimic Project

The DeepMimic paper’s first author, Berkeley PhD student Xue Bin Peng, has now open-sourced the project’s codes, data, and frameworks. Moreover, Peng’s new research demonstrates that DeepMimic’s simulated characters can also learn to perform highly dynamic movements by using regular video clips of human examples as input data.
