Look-ahead before you leap: end-to-end active recognition by forecasting the effect of motion [article]

Dinesh Jayaraman, Kristen Grauman
2016 arXiv   pre-print
To verify this hypothesis, we attempt to induce this capacity in our active recognition pipeline, by simultaneously learning to forecast the effects of the agent's motions on its internal representation  ...  Further, we hypothesize that active vision requires an agent to have the capacity to reason about the effects of its motions on its view of the world.  ...  Acknowledgments: This research is supported in part by ONR PECASE N00014-15-1-2291.  ...

Sidekick Policy Learning for Active Visual Exploration [article]

Santhosh K. Ramakrishnan, Kristen Grauman
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We consider an active visual exploration scenario, where an agent must intelligently select its camera motions to efficiently reconstruct the full environment from only a limited set of narrow field-of-view  ...  While the agent has full observability of the environment during training, it has only partial observability once deployed, being constrained by what portions it has seen and what camera motions are permissible  ...  Acknowledgements The authors thank Dinesh Jayaraman, Thomas Crosley, Yu-Chuan Su, and Ishan Durugkar for helpful discussions.  ...
