Applying state-of-the-art deep learning methods to robotics remains challenging. Generating the required amount of data for training on physical robots is costly and usually takes too long to be practically feasible. This is why simulation environments are becoming increasingly important in machine learning. They not only reduce costs and setup times but also enable arbitrary acceleration of the learning process through massively parallel deployment in the cloud. However, many state-of-the-art simulation environments only support very simple robot systems are not tailored to the specific requirements in robotics.

The goal of this practical course is to set up virtual environments in a cloud-based robot simulation environment and to train machine learning models in the cloud. Participants will leverage modern deplyoment methods such as containers to deploy detailed simulation models in the cloud and train simulated robot to perform tasks based on simulated sensor input.
Required Knowledge:
- Good proficience in Python
- Machine learning and neural networks (e.g. IN2064)
- Common machine learning tools (e.g. TensorFlow, PyTorch etc.)
- Robotics (e.g. IN2067)
- Basic understanding of C/C++
- Working with Linux, especially on the command line

Beneficial Knowledge:
- Experience with ROS and robot simulations (e.g. Gazebo)
- Basic knowledge in 3D modeling
- Docker
Participants will implement machine learning problems as robot simulations (e.g. pick-and-place tasks, navigation etc.), deploy them on common cloud infrastructures (e.g. OpenStack, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure etc.) and train them using state-of-the-art machine learning models.
