Learning the nature of a physical system is a problem that presents many challenges and opportunities due to the unique structure associated with such systems. Many physical systems in engineering are high-dimensional, which prohibits the application of standard learning methods to such problems. We have recently worked on solving such learning problems by identifying their low-dimensional Lagrangian structure, and the associated inference problem of solving a high-dimensional minimum-cost path problem by exploiting the symmetry of the problem. These methods are demonstrated via application to learning structure in high-dimensional human motion and optimal motion planning for highly articulated robot mechanisms. s brain cell using the pattern matching techniques and also to develop an automation program which can detect contact points of two materials precisely in nano-scale.
