Social interaction in trajectory prediction with Memory Augmented Networks

Prof. Alberto del Bimbo online


Effective modeling of human interactions is of utmost importance when forecasting behaviors such as future trajectories. Each individual, with its motion, influences surrounding agents since everyone obeys to social non-written rules such as collision avoidance or group following.  We believe that Memory Augmented Neural Networks are powerful models to effectively address this hard task. We present a neural network based on an end-to-end trainable working memory, which acts as an external storage where information about each agent can be continuously written, updated and recalled. Memory Augmented Neural Networks have also the interesting capability of learning explainable cause-effect relationships between motions of different agents. We show state-of-the-art results on multiple trajectory forecasting datasets.
