Seminar: Jack Umenberger, Sept 19th 2019

When: Thurs 19th Sept, 1pm. Where: Rose St Building seminar area Title: Learning robust LQ-controllers using application oriented exploration Abstract: This talk concerns the problem of learning robust linear quadratic (LQ) controllers, when the dynamics of the linear system are unknown. First, we propose a robust control synthesis method to minimize the worst-case LQ cost, with …
