    Robots that can adapt like animals

    , Nature, Vol: 521, Pages: 503-507, ISSN: 0028-0836

    As robots leave the controlled environments of factories to autonomouslyfunction in more complex, natural environments, they will have to respond tothe inevitable fact that they will become damaged. However, while animals canquickly adapt to a wide variety of injuries, current robots cannot "thinkoutside the box" to find a compensatory behavior when damaged: they are limitedto their pre-specified self-sensing abilities, can diagnose only anticipatedfailure modes, and require a pre-programmed contingency plan for every type ofpotential damage, an impracticality for complex robots. Here we introduce anintelligent trial and error algorithm that allows robots to adapt to damage inless than two minutes, without requiring self-diagnosis or pre-specifiedcontingency plans. Before deployment, a robot exploits a novel algorithm tocreate a detailed map of the space of high-performing behaviors: This maprepresents the robot's intuitions about what behaviors it can perform and theirvalue. If the robot is damaged, it uses these intuitions to guide atrial-and-error learning algorithm that conducts intelligent experiments torapidly discover a compensatory behavior that works in spite of the damage.Experiments reveal successful adaptations for a legged robot injured in fivedifferent ways, including damaged, broken, and missing legs, and for a roboticarm with joints broken in 14 different ways. This new technique will enablemore robust, effective, autonomous robots, and suggests principles that animalsmay use to adapt to injury.

    High-Dimensional Cluster Analysis with the Masked EM Algorithm

    , Neural Computation, Vol: 26, Pages: 2379-2394, ISSN: 0899-7667

    Cluster analysis faces two problems in high dimensions: the "curse of dimensionality" that can lead to overfitting and poor generalization performance and the sheer time taken for conventional algorithms to process large amounts of high-dimensional data. We describe a solution to these problems, designed for the application of spike sorting for nextgeneration, high-channel-count neural probes. In this problem, only a small subset of features provides information about the cluster membership of any one data vector, but this informative feature subset is not the same for all data points, rendering classical feature selection ineffective.We introduce a "masked EM" algorithm that allows accurate and time-efficient clustering of up to millions of points in thousands of dimensions. We demonstrate its applicability to synthetic data and to real-world high-channel-count spike sorting data.

    Gaussian Processes for Data-Efficient Learning in Robotics and Control

    , IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, ISSN: 0162-8828

    Autonomous learning has been a promising direction in control and robotics for more than a decade since data-drivenlearning allows to reduce the amount of engineering knowledge, which is otherwise required. However, autonomous reinforcementlearning (RL) approaches typically require many interactions with the system to learn controllers, which is a practical limitation in realsystems, such as robots, where many interactions can be impractical and time consuming. To address this problem, current learningapproaches typically require task-specific knowledge in form of expert demonstrations, realistic simulators, pre-shaped policies, orspecific knowledge about the underlying dynamics. In this article, we follow a different approach and speed up learning by extractingmore information from data. In particular, we learn a probabilistic, non-parametric Gaussian process transition model of the system.By explicitly incorporating model uncertainty into long-term planning and controller learning our approach reduces the effects of modelerrors, a key problem in model-based learning. Compared to state-of-the art RL our model-based policy search method achieves anunprecedented speed of learning. We demonstrate its applicability to autonomous learning in real robot and control tasks.
