Meeting Details

Date: 3rd October 2022

Time : 08:30 – 09:00

Location : Chair of CPS, Montanuniverität Leoben

Participants: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Elmar Rueckert, Vedant Dave


  1. Extension idea formulation for Journal Paper
  2. Work on exploration and curiosity

Topic 1: Science Robotics Paper

  1. Bi-level Probabilistic Movement Primitives due to uneven error propagation in different stages.
  2. Read literature [1] and see if we find something.

Topic 3: Dynamic Exploration and Curiosity

  1. We got out baseline [2] and now we try to implement this paper.
  2. Try the same model on more complex environments and more out-of-box goals.
  3. In process, first implement [3].
