Value Aggregation google
Value aggregation is a general framework for solving imitation learning problems. Based on the idea of data aggregation, it generates a policy sequence by iteratively interleaving policy optimization and evaluation in an online learning setting. …

Difference Guided Generative Adversarial Network (DGGAN) google
Predicting the future is a fantasy but practicality work. It is the key component to intelligent agents, such as self-driving vehicles, medical monitoring devices and robotics. In this work, we consider generating unseen future frames from previous obeservations, which is notoriously hard due to the uncertainty in frame dynamics. While recent works based on generative adversarial networks (GANs) made remarkable progress, there is still an obstacle for making accurate and realistic predictions. In this paper, we propose a novel GAN based on inter-frame difference to circumvent the difficulties. More specifically, our model is a multi-stage generative network, which is named the Difference Guided Generative Adversarial Netwok (DGGAN). The DGGAN learns to explicitly enforce future-frame predictions that is guided by synthetic inter-frame difference. Given a sequence of frames, DGGAN first uses dual paths to generate meta information. One path, called Coarse Frame Generator, predicts the coarse details about future frames, and the other path, called Difference Guide Generator, generates the difference image which include complementary fine details. Then our coarse details will then be refined via guidance of difference image under the support of GANs. With this model and novel architecture, we achieve state-of-the-art performance for future video prediction on UCF-101, KITTI. …

Dynamic Network Quantization (DNQ) google
Network quantization is an effective method for the deployment of neural networks on memory and energy constrained mobile devices. In this paper, we propose a Dynamic Network Quantization (DNQ) framework which is composed of two modules: a bit-width controller and a quantizer. Unlike most existing quantization methods that use a universal quantization bit-width for the whole network, we utilize policy gradient to train an agent to learn the bit-width of each layer by the bit-width controller. This controller can make a trade-off between accuracy and compression ratio. Given the quantization bit-width sequence, the quantizer adopts the quantization distance as the criterion of the weights importance during quantization. We extensively validate the proposed approach on various main-stream neural networks and obtain impressive results. …
