A tutorial session on Efficient Batch Optimization for Planning and Control by Dr. Arun Kumar Singh.
- Batch optimisation can counter the inherent non-convexity of the many trajectory optimisation problems.
- It can be combined with gradient-free sampling techniques like cross-entropy methods.
- It can be used to construct a new class of bi-level optimizers.
Dr. Arun Kumar Singh is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Technology, University of Tartu, Estonia, where he leads the Collaborative Robotics and Robotic Computing Group. Before joining the University of Tartu, he has been a postdoc at NTU, Singapore; Tampere University, Finland and BGU, Israel. His research interests lie in the algorithmic foundations of robotics, especially in the context of motion planning, control and learning for control.
