RaySearch to Demonstrate Machine Learning Advances at ASTRO

#artificialintelligence

During 15-17 September, RaySearch will exhibit its latest advances in oncology software at the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) 2019 annual meeting in Chicago, USA. On show will be new development in machine learning technology and automation in the RayStation* treatment planning system and the RayCare * oncology information system. Machine learning capabilities were added already in RayStation 8B and are being continuously improved. RaySearch has now been granted FDA 510(k) clearance for deep learning organ segmentation and for machine learning automated planning for a key model. Several planning models are being validated for future FDA 510(k) clearance.

About AI Planner Package Manager UI website

#artificialintelligence

Use the AI Planner package to create agents that generate and execute plans. For example, use AI Planner to create an NPC, generate storylines, or validate game/simulation mechanics. The AI Planner package also includes authoring tools and a plan visualizer. To install this package, follow the instructions in the Package Manager documentation. During execution, it is also useful to view an agent's plan through the plan visualizer.

Continuous Relaxation of Symbolic Planner for One-Shot Imitation Learning

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Continuous Relaxation of Symbolic Planner for One-Shot Imitation Learning De-An Huang 1, Danfei Xu 1, Y uke Zhu 1, Animesh Garg 1, 2, Silvio Savarese 1, Li Fei-Fei 1, Juan Carlos Niebles 1 Abstract -- We address one-shot imitation learning, where the goal is to execute a previously unseen task based on a single demonstration. While there has been exciting progress in this direction, most of the approaches still require a few hundred tasks for meta-training, which limits the scalability of the approaches. Our main contribution is to formulate one-shot imitation learning as a symbolic planning problem along with the symbol grounding problem. This formulation disentangles the policy execution from the inter-task generalization and leads to better data efficiency. The key technical challenge is that the symbol grounding is prone to error with limited training data and leads to subsequent symbolic planning failures. We address this challenge by proposing a continuous relaxation of the discrete symbolic planner that directly plans on the probabilistic outputs of the symbol grounding model. Our continuous relaxation of the planner can still leverage the information contained in the probabilistic symbol grounding and significantly improve over the baseline planner for the one-shot imitation learning tasks without using large training data. I NTRODUCTION We are interested in robots that can learn a wide variety of tasks efficiently. Recently, there has been an increasing interest in the one-shot imitation learning problem [1-7], where the goal is to learn to execute a previously unseen task from only a single demonstration of the task. This setting is also referred to as meta-learning [3, 8], where the meta-training stage uses a set of tasks in a given domain to simulate the one-shot testing scenario. This allows the learned model to generalize to previously unseen tasks with a single demonstration in the meta-testing stage. The main shortcoming of these one-shot approaches is that they typically require a large amount of data for meta-training (400 meta-training tasks in [4] and 1000 in [6] for the Block Stacking task [6]) to generalize reliably to unseen tasks.

Towards Explainable AI Planning as a Service

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Explainable AI is an important area of research within which Explainable Planning is an emerging topic. In this paper, we argue that Explainable Planning can be designed as a service -- that is, as a wrapper around an existing planning system that utilises the existing planner to assist in answering contrastive questions. We introduce a prototype framework to facilitate this, along with some examples of how a planner can be used to address certain types of contrastive questions. We discuss the main advantages and limitations of such an approach and we identify open questions for Explainable Planning as a service that identify several possible research directions.
