title = "On the Convergence of DEM{\textquoteright}s Linear Parameter Estimator",

abstract = "The free energy principle from neuroscience provides an efficient data-driven framework called the Dynamic Expectation Maximization (DEM), to learn the generative model in the environment. DEM{\textquoteright}s growing potential to be the brain-inspired learning algorithm for robots demands a mathematically rigorous analysis using the standard control system tools. Therefore, this paper derives the mathematical proof of convergence for its parameter estimator for linear state space systems, subjected to colored noise. We show that the free energy based parameter learning converges to a stable solution for linear systems. The paper concludes by providing a proof of concept through simulation for a wide range of spring damper systems.",
