THE ROLE OF MACHINE LEARNING FOR FLEXIBILITY AND REAL OPTIONS ANALYSIS IN ENGINEERING SYSTEMS DESIGN

Cesare Caputo, Michel-Alexandre Cardin
2021 Proceedings of the Design Society  
This paper makes the case for an increased integration of Machine Learning into flexibility and real options analysis in engineering systems design to complement existing design methods.  ...  Reinforcement Learning is particularly promising as a result of the theoretical common grounds with latest methodological developments e.g. decision-rule based real options analysis.  ...  Reinforcement Learning Reinforcement learning (RL) does not fall within either of the traditional ML paradigms of supervised or unsupervised learning.  ...

Becoming more systematic about flexible learning: beyond time and distance

Wim De Boer, Betty Collis
2005 Research in Learning Technology  
Course management systems (CMSs) offer options that can support both of these sorts of flexibility, if instructors use the CMSs with a systematic frame of reference.  ...  Changes in higher education frequently involve the need for more flexibility in course design and delivery. Flexibility is a concept that can be operationalized in many ways.  ...  With these options the content can be related to the context of the learners, which is a strong and flexible way to offer students relevant learning experiences.  ...

Multi-agent Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning with Dynamic Termination [chapter]

Dongge Han, Wendelin Böhmer, Michael Wooldridge, Alex Rogers
2019 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In order to balance flexibility and predictability, we propose a dynamic termination Bellman equation that allows the agents to flexibly terminate their options.  ...  One obvious possibility is for each agent to broadcast their current intention, for example, the currently executed option in a hierarchical reinforcement learning framework.  ...  Therefore, to balance flexibility with predictability, we introduced dynamic termination, which enables agents to terminate their options flexibly according to the current state.  ...
