Title: METHODS FOR CONTROLLING EQUIPMENT AND CONTROLLED EQUIPMENT USING INVERSE USER MODELS
Abstract:
Examples described herein may utilize an inversion-based approach to infer human intent (e.g., what trajectory the user is trying to achieve) and use it to select the input update for improving output tracking. This may be achieved in some examples even if the user does not have sufficient expertise to achieve output tracking with the machine. In some examples, the inversion-based approach may be used to infer intent of autonomous agents in a network, which may improve performance of the entire network.
