Meeting Details

Date : 13th September 2022

Time : 12:30 – 1:30

Location : Chair of CPS, Montanuniverität Leoben

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


  1. Learning Consistent Forward and Inverse Dynamics.

Topic 1: Idea Development

  1. Thinking in terms of Closed loop systems and feedback controllers.
  2. Regularizing Forward model via Inverse model.
  3. Single-step and Multi-step prediction models.
  4. Comparing Multi-step predictions with Movement Primitives.

Topic 2: Toy Example

  1. Generate a toy dataset(Temperature) with just single parameter.
  2. Try forward model to approximate out-of-distribution testing data.
  3. If it fails, try to regularize it with Inverse model and check if it works out.
