Remote Memory for Non-Masochists

430 (Woz) Soda Hall
  • Marcos K. Aguilera, VMWare Research
Remote memory is an old idea that has recently re-emerged in the age of fast networks, and it is now increasingly compelling. However, for remote memory to be successful, it needs to provide a better abstraction. The current abstraction based on RDMA is complex, error-prone, and clunky, limiting its adoption to experts and masochists. In this talk, we describe a number of alternatives that we are...

Dissertation Talk: Acquiring Diverse Robot Skills via Maximum Entropy Reinforcement Learning

250 Sutardja Dai Hall
  • Tuomas Haarnoja, UC Berkeley
The intersection of expressive, general-purpose function approximators, such as neural networks, with general-purpose model-free reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms holds the promise of automating a wide range of robotic behaviors: reinforcement learning provides the formalism for reasoning about sequential decision making, while large neural networks can process high-dimensional and noisy...
