Behavior recognition for segmentation of demonstrated tasks
2008 (English)In: IEEE SMC International Conference on Distributed Human-Machine Systems (DHMS), 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
One common approach to the robot learning technique Learning From Demonstration, is to use a set of pre-programmed skills as building blocks for more complex tasks. One important part of this approach is recognition of these skills in a demonstration comprising a stream of sensor and actuator data. In this paper, three novel techniques for behavior recognition are presented and compared. The first technique is function-oriented and compares actions for similar inputs. The second technique is based on auto-associative neural networks and compares reconstruction errors in sensory-motor space. The third technique is based on S-Learning and compares sequences of patterns in sensory-motor space. All three techniques compute an activity level which can be seen as an alternative to a pure classification approach. Performed tests show how the former approach allows a more informative interpretation of a demonstration, by not determining "correct" behaviors but rather a number of alternative interpretations.
