Prediction of Social Dynamic Agents and Long-Tailed Learning Challenges: A Survey

Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research

Autonomous robots that can perform common tasks like driving, surveillance, and chores have the biggest potential for impact due to frequency of usage, and the biggest potential for risk due to direct interaction with humans. These tasks take place in openended environments where humans socially interact and pursue their goals in complex and diverse ways. To operate in such environments, such systems must predict this behaviour, especially when the behavior is unexpected and potentially dangerous. Therefore, we summarize trends in various types of tasks, modeling methods, datasets, and social interaction modules aimed at predicting the future location of dynamic, socially interactive agents. Furthermore, we describe long-tailed learning techniques from classification and regression problems that can be applied to prediction problems. To our knowledge this is the first work that reviews social interaction modeling within prediction, and long-tailed learning techniques within regression and prediction.
