09.00-10:00 Invited Talk: Motor Skill Learning for Cognitive Robotics
by Jan Peters
Please note: This talk is a joint talk with W26 and will hence take place in room II-8.
10:00-10:30 Coffee break
10:30-10:50 Welcome by the ERLARS Chairs
10:50-12:30 4 Presentations:
  • Gradient Based Reinforcement Learning for Autonomous Underwater Cable Tracking
    by Andres El-Fakdi, Marc Carreras and Emili Hernandez
  • Incremental Basis Function Expansion in Reinforcement Learning using Cascade-Correlation Networks
    by Sertan Girgin and Philippe Preux
  • Application of Reinforcement Learning in a Real Environment Using an RBF Network
    by Sebastian Papierok, Anastasia Noglik and Josef Pauli

    by Sebastiaan Troost, Erik Schuitema and Pieter Jonker
12:30-14:00 Lunch break
14:00-14:50 2 Presentations:
  • A Reinforcement Learning Approach for Production Control in Manufacturing Systems
    by Alexander Xanthopoulos, Dimitrios Koulouriotis and Antonios Gasteratos
  • Efficient Learning of Dynamics Models using Terrain Classification
    by Bethany Leffler, Christopher Mansley and Michael Littman
14:50-15:30 Discussion on the subject What can a robot system learn by itself, and what is the best way of doing it?
This is an open forum to exchange ideas and viewpoints on robot learning. We are looking forward to hearing your opinion on this subject!
15:30-16:00 Coffee break
16:00-16:30 Continued discussion; roundup and closing remarks by the chairs.
