Decision-making with Imaginary Opponent Models

no code implementations22 Nov 2022 Jing Sun, Shuo Chen, Cong Zhang, Jie Zhang

Specifically, the actor maintains a speculated belief of the opponents, which we call the \textit{imaginary opponent models}, to predict opponents' actions using local observations and makes decisions accordingly.

Spherical Convolution empowered FoV Prediction in 360-degree Video Multicast with Limited FoV Feedback

1 code implementation29 Jan 2022 Jie Li, Ling Han, Cong Zhang, Qiyue Li, Zhi Liu

Most of the current prediction methods combining saliency detection and FoV information neither take into account that the distortion of projected 360-degree videos can invalidate the weight sharing of traditional convolutional networks, nor do they adequately consider the difficulty of obtaining complete multi-user FoV information, which degrades the prediction performance.
