RegFlow: Probabilistic Flow-based Regression for Future Prediction

11/30/2020 ∙ by Maciej Zieba, et al. ∙ 0

Predicting future states or actions of a given system remains a fundamental, yet unsolved challenge of intelligence, especially in the scope of complex and non-deterministic scenarios, such as modeling behavior of humans. Existing approaches provide results under strong assumptions concerning unimodality of future states, or, at best, assuming specific probability distributions that often poorly fit to real-life conditions. In this work we introduce a robust and flexible probabilistic framework that allows to model future predictions with virtually no constrains regarding the modality or underlying probability distribution. To achieve this goal, we leverage a hypernetwork architecture and train a continuous normalizing flow model. The resulting method dubbed RegFlow achieves state-of-the-art results on several benchmark datasets, outperforming competing approaches by a significant margin.
