AIO for August 26th, 2014

Last week's accomplishments

Objectives from last week:

Other things I did:

  • Get Anne a computer and help set it up: Done.
  • Deal with AWS payments: Done, setup Ton's credit card for the ~$5/month fee.
  • Sat in on Ton's class.
  • Discussed SWC workshop plans with Ahmet.

Last week's issues

  • Setup offline backups for the HMC website: 90% done but having an issue setting file permissions for the backup files on the AWS server so that a specified user can rsync them to another server.
  • Implement a tight matrix eval broadcasted loop to speed up the inverted pendulum direct collocation: Started, but haven't finished yet due to time.
  • Run more example optimizations on the inverted pendulum (after speed up is implemented): Not started, ran out of time.
  • Go through the next two chapters in Accelerated C++: Not started, ran out of time.
  • It took a while to get back to East Coast time. I had dentist and doctor's appointments and have been dealing with allergies and computer neck problems.

This week's objectives

  • Fix the permissions issues for offline backups for the HMC website.
  • Finish implementing a tight matrix eval broadcasted loop to speed up the inverted pendulum direct collocation.
  • Run more example optimizations on the inverted pendulum (after speed up is implemented). This will happen once the above is done.
  • Meet with Brad to discuss implementing direct collocation in Opensim on Wednesday.
  • Write outline for direct collocation system id paper.
  • Write two sections for the perturbed walking paper.
  • Figure out the basic topics and time allotments for the topics at the IEEE open source hack night.
  • Email RUG, PUG, and NASA Python guys about the SWC workshop and cc Ahmet.
  • Finish table in the steer torque paper.
  • Add in torque wrench section into the steer torque paper.
  • Write outline for a bicycle data paper.
  • Go through the next two chapters in Accelerated C++.
