TensorFlow impementation of: Embed to Control: A Locally Linear Latent Dynamics Model for Control from Raw Images, with code optimized for clarity and simplicity.
Only 160 lines of code, and only uses Python modules that come installed with TensorFlow. Proper writeup explaining the paper plus improved model code to soon follow.
Larger step sizes (magnitude of u) yield better latent space reconstruction...
but degrade image reconstruction fidelity (more on this later...). Here's a different set of obstacles:
- Implements the standard E2C model with the factorized Gaussian KL divergence term (Eq. 14)
- Adam Optimizer + Orthogonal weight initialization scheme by Saxe et al..
- Learns the latent space of the planar control task (uses the same parameters described in the paper, Appendix B.6.2)
Training the Model
First, generate the synthetic training data
plane2.npz by running the following script.
$ python plane_data2.py
Then, train the model
$ python e2c.py
You can then generate visualizations by executing:
$ python viz_results.py
Thanks to Manuel Watter for answering my questions about the paper.
