ROS Tensorflow

4 minute read

Published:

In this blog post I go through some useful techniques to nicely integrate Tensorflow (TF) in ROS nodes. The related code can be found in the following ros_tensorflow github repo.

Gleeo time plotter

5 minute read

Published:

I have been using the Gleeo time tracker app on my phone to track my time at work for multiple years. To make sense of the data, I implemented a jupyter notebook. The notebook reports:

  • Total time spent per project
  • Time spent per project [per unit of time]
  • Over(under)hours aggregation, accounting for holidays

talks

Learning Movements by Imitation from Event-Based Visual Prediction

Published:

In this talk, I introduce a new method for robots to learn movements from visual prediction. The method consists of two phases: learning a visual prediction model for a given movement, then minimizing the visual prediction error. The visual prediction model is learned from a single demonstration of the movement where only visual input is sensed.

Synaptic Plasticity Dynamics for Deep Continuous Local Learning

Published:

Understanding and deriving neural and synaptic plasticity rules that can enable hidden weights to learn is an ongoing quest in neuroscience and neuromorphic engineering. From a machine learning perspective, locality and differentiability are key issues of the spiking neuron model operations. In this poster presentation, it is shown that deep learning algorithms that locally approximate the gradient backpropagation updates using locally synthesized gradients overcome this challenge.
