Integration of machine learning and operations research to solve more realistic problems

An overview talk of past and current research.

Dynamic ride-hailing with electric vehicles

We consider the problem of an operator controlling a fleet of electric vehicles for use in a ride-hailing service. The operator, seeking to maximize profit, must assign vehicles to requests as they arise as well as recharge and reposition vehicles in …

Atari-fying the vehicle routing problem with stochastic service requests (CORS)

A technical talk on the new paradigm of atari-fying operations research problems.

Atari-fying the vehicle routing problem with stochastic service requests

We present a new general approach to modeling research problems as Atari-like videogames to make them amenable to recent groundbreaking solution methods from the deep reinforcement learning community. The approach is flexible, applicable to a wide …
