Incorporating Inductive Biases in Deep Learning for Improved Generalization
Recent work has shown deep learning can significantly improve time series prediction and dynamics learning. However, the inability to generalize under distributional shift limits its applicability to the real world. In this talk, I will demonstrate how to principally incorporate inductive biases such as graphs and symmetry to improve generalization. I will showcase their applications to challenging tasks including robotic manipulation, turbulence modeling, and AV trajectory prediction.
