Regret Minimization in Partially Observable Linear Quadratic Control

01/31/2020 ∙ by Sahin Lale, et al. ∙ 13

We study the problem of regret minimization in partially observable linear quadratic control systems when the model dynamics are unknown a priori. We propose ExpCommit, an explore-then-commit algorithm that learns the model Markov parameters and then follows the principle of optimism in the face of uncertainty to design a controller. We propose a novel way to decompose the regret and provide an end-to-end sublinear regret upper bound for partially observable linear quadratic control. Finally, we provide stability guarantees and establish a regret upper bound of Õ(T^2/3) for ExpCommit, where T is the time horizon of the problem.
