 +    a novel framework for robot programming by demonstration based on 
 +    Conditional Neural Processes (CNP). ​ Like Bayesian methods such as 
 +    Gaussian Processes (GP), CNP learn how target distributions depend 
 +    on data, and can be conditioned on specific data points to infer 
 +    new target distributions at test time.  Unlike GP that are 
 +    expensive to train and scale poorly to high dimensions, CNP are 
 +    neural networks and are trained by gradient descent. ​ CNMP 
 +    leverage CNP to represent motion trajectories that can be 
 +    conditioned,​ at test time, on task paramters such as goal 
 +    locations, via points, and/or force readings. ​ Moreover, CNMP are 
 +    conditioned on sensor readings during execution, resulting in 
 +    robust, reactive behavior. ​ This talk will present an overview of 
 +    how CNMP work and how they can be used in various robot 
 +    applications.</​blockquote></​td></​tr><​tr valign="​top"><​td>​2020-06-03</​td><​td>​Justus Piater appears in the media: Wie der Roboter denken lernt.</​td></​tr><​tr valign="​top"><​td>​2020-01-29</​td><​td>​Justus Piater gives an invited talk <​i>​Digital Science</​i>​ at <a href="​https://​www.graduateacademy.uni-heidelberg.de/​karriere/​veranstaltungsreihen.html">​Vortragsreihe
