Surprisingly Robust In-Hand Manipulation: An Empirical Study [article]

Aditya Bhatt, Adrian Sieler, Steffen Puhlmann, Oliver Brock
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We believe that these principles constitute an important foundation for robust robotic in-hand manipulation, and possibly for manipulation in general.  ...  To explain the surprising robustness of the in-hand manipulation skills, we performed a detailed, empirical analysis of the skills' performance.  ...  The near-accidental discovery of very robust in-hand manipulation skills triggered an extensive empirical investigation into the causes of the surprising robustness.  ...

Ethnicity and Conflict: An Empirical Study

Joan Esteban, Laura Mayoral, Debraj Ray
2012 The American Economic Review  
In particular, inter-group distances computed from language and embodied in polarization measures turn out to be extremely important correlates of ethnic conflict.  ...  Fractionalization is also significant in some of the statistical exercises, but the Gini coefficient never is.  ...  The variables and controls used in the empirical exercise are fully listed in an Appendix. The main empirical results are presented in Section 4. Section 5 is devoted to various robustness tests.  ...

An empirical study of long lived bugs

Ripon K. Saha, Sarfraz Khurshid, Dewayne E. Perry
2014 2014 Software Evolution Week - IEEE Conference on Software Maintenance, Reengineering, and Reverse Engineering (CSMR-WCRE)  
Our study on four open-source projects shows that there are a considerable number of long lived bugs in each system and over 90% of them adversely affect the user's experience.  ...  While there are many studies that investigate factors affecting bug fixing time for entire bug repositories, to the best of our knowledge, none of these studies investigates the extent and reasons of long  ...  This research was supported in part by NSF Grants CCF-0820251 and CCF-0845628.  ...

Reward function shape exploration in adversarial imitation learning: an empirical study [article]

Yawei Wang, Xiu Li
2021 arXiv   pre-print
The empirical results reveal that the positive logarithmic reward function works well in typical continuous control tasks.  ...  In contrast, the so-called unbiased reward function is limited to specific kinds of tasks. Furthermore, several designed reward functions perform excellently in these environments as well.  ...  Our empirical observations suggest that the positive logarithmic reward function behaves surprisingly well in these tasks, conflicting with the results in [18] .  ...
