Evolutionary Autonomous Networks

Paul Harvey, Alexandru Tatar, Pierre Imai, Leon Wong, Laurent Bringuier
2021 Journal of ICT Standardization  
We argue that only a holistic architecture based on hierarchies of hybrid learning, functional composition, and online experimental evaluation is expressive and capable enough to realise true autonomy  ...  In this paper we present our vision for the future of autonomous networking.  ...  For example, through a pre-configured mapping of high-level policies to low level actions an automated agent is told what actions to take to optimize an objective.  ...

Simulation and optimisation of intermodal barge transport networks

An Caris
2010 4OR  
Jourquin et al. (1999) combine a network model with GIS software to support strategic decisions of a network operator.  ...  Network operator At a strategic decision level a network operator has to plan the infrastructure of the intermodal network. This implies decisions regarding investments in links and nodes.  ...  A multi-start approach, assigning different values to the weights, is applied to find the best overall solution.  ...
