IJCNN 2016 Special SessionUa - Approximate Dynamic Programming and Reinforcement Learning forHigh Dimensional Systems

Organizers: Dongbin Zhao, Yuanheng Zhu,and Haibo He

 

In the past few decades, adaptive dynamic programming (ADP) and reinforcement learning (RL) have been extensively studied from the aspects of both computational intelligence and control communities. Great achievements have been obtained in solving optimal control and providing intelligent solutions for various problems. Multi-agent ADP/RL is a very hot research topic to solve cooperative control problems among agents with multiple inputs. Recently, the input to the agent is extended to higher dimension, e. g., image. Google Deepmind group proposes promising results for video games based on deep reinforcement learning, with videos or images are as the input, which is a great success and inspirationfor ADP/RL research domain. In sum, the ADP/RL for high dimensional systems deserves more and more research attention.

 

The aim of this special session is to call for the most advanced research and state-of-the-art works in the field of ADP/RL in high dimensional systems. It is expected to provide a platform for international researchers to exchange ideas and to present their latest research in the relevant topics. All the original papers related toADP and RL are welcome. Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:

 

  • Theoretical foundation of ADP in convergence, stability, robustness, and etc. ;
  • Multi-agent adaptive dynamic programming;
  • Hierarchical reinforcement learning;
  • Deep reinforcement learning;
  • Deep adaptive dynamic programming;
  • Combination ofADPand RL with recurrent neural network;
  • Data-driven learning and control;
  • Applications in realistic and complicated systems.
