Abstract In this paper, end devices are considered here as agent, which makes its decisions on whether the network will offload the computation tasks to the edge devices or not. To tackle the resource allocation and task offloading, paper formulated the computation resource allocation problems as a

Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of this reinforcement learning based scheme to minimize the offloading cost derived as computation cost and delay cost in industrial internet of things scenarios.
