Pascal Poupart

Last week, Pascal Poupart came to our university. He gave two talks and had several private meetings.
I wanted to talk to him sometime but unfortunately I could only attend one of his talks as the previous week was a hazard for me.
I was curious to talk to him about POMDP (which is his speciallity) and try to see the similarities/differences between POMDP and the concept of partial observablity in control theory from his perspective. For sure, both of them are talking about the same thing, but the goal of investigating PO is not completely the same. One reason might be due to discrete/continuous state differences between those two which leads to different approaches of the problem, i.e. state reconstruction might be easier if we assume that the dynamical system obeys some regularities such as linearity.
