Diffusion Model-Augmented Behavioral Cloning
This work aims to augment BC by employing diffusion models for modeling expert behaviors, and designing a learning objective that leverages learned diffusion models to guide policy learning. To this end, we propose diffusion model-augmented behavioral cloning (DBC) that combines our proposed diffusion model guided learning objective with the BC objective, which complements each other. Our proposed method outperforms baselines or achieves competitive performance in various continuous control domains, including navigation, robot arm manipulation, and locomotion.
