A group of AI experts from top US universities is organizing a sample-efficient reinforcement learning competition, MineRL, which will start on June 1, 2019. The organizers want to increase group participation in reinforcement learning and are encouraging people to “play to benefit science”.
As robots take over industrial manufacturing, specific and accurate robot control is becoming more important. Conventional feedback control methods can effectively solve various types of robot control problems by capturing structures with explicit models such as motion equations.
The Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) is one of the world’s top computer vision (CV) conferences. CVPR 2019 runs June 15 through June 21 in Long Beach, California, and the list of accepted papers for the prestigious gathering has now been released.
Having notched impressive victories over human professionals in Go, Atari Games, and most recently StarCraft 2 — Google’s DeepMind team has now turned its formidable research efforts to soccer. In a paper released last week, the UK AI company demonstrates a novel machine learning method that trains a team of AI agents to play a simulated version of “the beautiful game.”
