Online Learning with Stochastic Recurrent Neural Networks using Intrinsic Motivation Signals

Daniel Tanneberg, Jan Peters, Elmar A. Rückert
2017 Conference on Robot Learning  
The efficient online adaptation is shown in simulation by learning an unknown workspace constraint using mental replay and cognitive dissonance as intrinsic motivation signal.  ...  This fast adaptation behavior allows the robot to learn from only a small number of physical interactions and is a promising feature for reusing the model in different environments.  ...  We will show that as a result of these mechanisms, the model can efficiently adapt online to unknown environments.  ...
