Vision-Based Manipulators Need to Also See from Their Hands

Instrumenting manipulators with hand-centric sensing facilitates out-of-distribution generalization.

Differentiable Annealed Importance Sampling and the Perils of Gradient Noise

Marrying Hamiltonian Monte Carlo with annealed importance sampling results in an unbiased estimate of marginal likelihood that supports pathwise derivatives. Surprisingly, stochastic gradient annealed importance sampling turns out to be inconsistent.
