The objective of this course is to learn to apply the technique of reinforcement learning to solve a variety of operational problems. After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
This course introduces the technique of reinforcement learning to optimize operations management problems. It covers both theoretical foundations as well as the implementation of reinforcement learning algorithms to practical problems. The focus will be on the effective application to operations management problems. All students are expected to design and implement a reinforcement learning algorithm for a problem of choice. Examples of reinforcement learning applications in the operations management and logistics field are provided during the course. Coaching will be provided to assist the students in their assignment.
Opening session (in Utrecht).
(Bi-)weekly coaching sessions per squad (online).
Intermediate presentation to discuss the status (online).
Closing session (in Utrecht) with final presentations and closure of the program.
