## 02 Dec reinforcement learning for optimal control of queueing systems

Our analysis results show that a single-hop overlay path provides the same degree of path diversity as the multi-hop overlay path for more than 90% of source and destination pairs. In turn, it is of considerable importance to make Kalman-filters amenable for reinforcement learning. The overview also uncovers a surprising limitation shared by the different algorithms: while several algorithms can provably generate gain-optimal policies that maximize average reward, none of them can reliably filter these to produce bias-optimal (or T-optimal) policies that also maximize the finite reward 10 absorbing goal states. The book is available from the publishing company Athena Scientific, or from Amazon.com.. Click here for an extended lecture/summary of the book: Ten Key Ideas for Reinforcement Learning and Optimal Control. Recently, many overlay applications have emerged in the Internet. Due to its generality, reinforcement learning is studied in many disciplines, such as game theory, control theory, operations research, information theory, simulation-based optimization, multi-agent systems, swarm intelligence, and statistics.In the operations research and control literature, reinforcement learning is called â¦ These OBs cooperate with each other to form an overlay service network (OSN) and provide overlay service support for overlay applications, such as resource allocation and negotiation, overlay routing, topology discovery, and other functionalities. This work was presented in part at the IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory, Budapest, Hungary, June 24-28, 1991. Recently, overlay networks have emerged as a means to enhance end-to-end application performance and availability. This paper presents ModelicaGym toolbox that was developed to employ Reinforcement Learning (RL) for solving optimization and control tasks in Modelica models. We provide an analytical study on the optimal policy for fixed-pattern channel switching with known system dynamics and show through simulations that DQN can achieve the same optimal performance without knowing the system statistics. Maybe there's some hope for RL method if they "course correct" for simpler control â¦ Introduction to model predictive control. 3, pp. In a Markovian setting, this extends a recent result by Dai and Vande Vate, which states that a reentrant line queueing network with two stations is globally stable if ρ∗ < 1. In the usual formulation of optimal control it is computed,off-line by solving a backward,recursion. Model-free reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms on the other hand obtain the optimal policy when Assumptions 1 and 2 hold, but model information is not available. essentially equivalent names: reinforcement learning, approximate dynamic programming, and neuro-dynamic programming. 1). A general sensitive discount optimality metric called n-discount-optimality is introduced, and used to compare the various algorithms. 09/18/2019 â by Oleh Lukianykhin, et al. The routing scheme is illustrated on a 20-node intercontinental overlay network that collects some 2× 10-6 measurements per week, and makes scalable distributed routing decisions. These results are complemented by a sample complexity bound on the number of suboptimal steps taken by our algorithm. Key words: Sanov's theorem, Pinsker's inequality, large deviations, L 1 distance, divergence, variational distance, Cherno# bound. In both cases the gliding trajectories are smooth, although energy/time optimal strategies are distinguished by small/high frequency actuations.

We also demonstrate that the gliders with D-RL can generalize their strategies to reach the target location from previously unseen starting positions. Data here include the number of customer arrivals, waiting times, and the server's busy times. However, finding optimal control policies Potential of this approach is demonstrated through a case study. Furthermore, NashQ also appears to be more robust to the non-uniqueness of Nash equilibrium as results show a consistent cooperative behavior trend when compared with the existing approach. Recursive least squares (RLS) algorithms are developed to approximate the HJB equation solution that is supported by a sequence of greedy policies. The systems are represented as stochastic process, especially, markov decision process. Bertsekas, D., "Multiagent Reinforcement Learning: Rollout and Policy Iteration," ASU Report Oct. 2020; to be published in IEEE/CAA Journal of Automatica Sinica. The obtained control â¦ In this paper, a novel on-line sequential learning evolving neural network model design for RL is proposed. The behavior of a reinforcement learning policyâthat is, how the policy observes the environment and generates actions to complete a task in an optimal mannerâis similar to the operation of a controller in a control system. Machine learning control (MLC) is a subfield of machine learning, intelligent control and control theory which solves optimal control problems with methods of machine learning.Key applications are complex nonlinear systems for which linear control theory methods are not applicable. Admission control is one way of providing end-to-end delay guarantee, where the controller accepts a job only if it has a high probability of meeting the deadline. Markovian, our method establishes not only positive recurrence and the We, therefore, develop a machine learning-based scheme that exploits large scale data collected from communicating node pairs in a multihop overlay network that uses IP between the overlay nodes, and selects paths that provide substantially better QoS than IP. flows: a traffic flow is delay stable if its expected steady-state delay is Markov processes play an important role in the study of probability theory.

A novel idea to bridge the gap is overlay networks, or just overlays for short. Near-optimal Regret Bounds for Reinforcement Learning. A. Ephremides is with the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742. to encode prior knowledge in a natural way. 87, No. Our result is more generally applicable to continuous state action problems. In indicates how well the agent is doing at step \(t\). The performance objective is to minimize, over all sequencing and routing policies, a weighted sum of the expected response times of different classes. Clearly classical RL algorithms cannot help in learning optimal policies when Assumption â¦ Decisions are made concerning whether or not customers should be admitted to the system (admission control) and, if they are to be admitted, where they should go to receive service (routing control). In order to describe the transition structure of an MDP we propose a new parameter: An MDP has diameter D if for any pair of states s, s ' there is a policy which moves from s to s ' in at most D steps (on average). In this paper, we propose a reinforcement learning-based admission controller that guarantees a probabilistic upper-bound on the end-to-end delay of the service system, while minimizes the probability of unnecessary rejections. [/PDF/ImageB/ImageC/ImageI/Text] domain-dependent spreading function, the performance of the learning By using Q-function, we propose an online learning scheme to estimate the kernel matrix of Q-function and to update the control gain using the data along the system trajectories. How should it be viewed from a control systems perspective? Although the difficulty can be effectively overcame by the RL strategy, the existing RL algorithms are very complex because their updating laws are obtained by carrying out gradient descent algorithm to square of the approximated HJB equation (Bellman residual error). Each queue is associated with a channel that changes between "on" and "off" states according to i.i.d. PSRL maintains a distribution over MDP parameters and in an episodic fashion samples MDP parameters, computes the optimal policy for them and executes it. other scheduling constraints in the network. $\ell_\infty$ error) for unbounded state space. Reinforcement learning can be translated to a control system representation using the following mapping. Reinforcement Learning and Control Workshop on Learning and Control ...

As a performance metric we use the delay stability of traffic .. In this work, we consider using model-based reinforcement learning (RL) to learn the optimal control policy of queueing networks so that the average job delay (or equivalently the average queue backlog) is minimized. We establish an $\tilde{O}(\tau S Overlays use the functional primitives that the underlay has to offer. In the traditional HVAC control system, the thermal comfort and the acoustic comfort are often conflicted and we lack of a scheme to trade off them well. The job of the agent is to maximize the cumulative reward. LP-based planning is critical in setting a medium range or long-term goal for many systems, but it does not translate into a day-to-day operational policy that must deal with discreteness of jobs and the randomness of the processing environment. Approximate dynamic programming techniques and RL have been applied to queueing problems in prior work [30,42,37], though their settings and goals are quite different from us, and their approaches exploit prior knowledge of queueing theory and specific structures of the problems. time consuming. The RL learning problem. Subsequently, a more complicated problem is considered, involving routing control in a system which consists of heterogeneous, multiple-server facilities arranged in parallel. from which we derive results related to the delay stability of traffic flows, 1 0 obj The method uses linear or A novel adaptive interleaved reinforcement learning algorithm is developed for finding a robust controller of DT affine nonlinear systems subject to matched or unmatched uncertainties. We study an The mean square error accuracy, computational cost, and robustness properties of this scheme are compared with static structure neural networks. In order to describe the transition structure of an MDP we propose a new parameter: An MDP has diameter D if for any pair of states s,s' there is a policy which moves from s to s' in at most D steps (on average). Experimental results have demonstrated that users are capable to learn good policies that achieve strong performance in this challenging partially observable setting only from their ACK signals, without online coordination, message exchanges between users, or carrier sensing. traffic flow is delay unstable under any scheduling policy. The plant operates in slotted time, and every slot it makes decisions about re-stocking materials and pricing the existing products in reaction to (possibly time-varying) material costs and consumer demands.

Traditional approaches in RL, however, cannot handle the unbounded state spaces of the network control â¦ We also derive a generalization of Pinsker's inequality relating the L 1 distance to the divergence. As a proof of concept, we propose an RL policy using Sparse-Sampling-based Monte Carlo Oracle and argue that it satisfies the stability property as long as the system dynamics under the optimal policy respects a Lyapunov function. As the main contribution of this work, inspired by the literature in queuing systems and control theory, we propose stability as the notion of "goodness": the state dynamics under the policy should remain in a bounded region with high probability.

This paper proposes a NASH Q-learning (NashQ) algorithm in a packet forwarding game in overlay noncooperative multi-agent wireless sensor networks (WSNs). We base our analysis on extensive data collection from 232 points in 10 ISPs, and 100 PlanetLab nodes. We show that a policy that assigns the servers to the longest queues whose channel is "on" minimizes the total queue size, as well as a broad class of other performance criteria. The different types of overlays include: the caching overlay, routing overlay, and the security overlay. No. then follows the policy that is optimal for this sample during the episode. The ingenuity of this approach lies in its online nature, which allows the service provider do better by interacting with the environment. algorithm is conceptually simple, computationally efficient and allows an agent Obtaining an optimal solution for the spectrum access problem is computationally expensive in general due to the large state space and partial observability of the states. Each server, during each slot, can transmit up to C packets from each queue associated with an "on" channel. I Lecture slides: David Silver, UCL Course on RL, 2015. Surprisingly, we find that the model-free reinforcement learning leads to more robust gliding than model-based optimal control strategies with a modest additional computational cost.

In turn, the overlay provides richer functionality to services that are built on top of it. Complex systems like semiconductor wafer fabrication facilities (fabs), networks of data switches, and large-scale call centers all demand efficient resource allocation. Pre- vious results provide numerical bounds and only on the expectation, not the distribution, of queue lengths. Extensions of this idea to general MDPs without state resetting has so far produced non-practical algorithms and in some cases buggy theoretical analysis. Homogeneous denumerable Markov processes are among the main topics in the theory and have a wide range of application in various fields of science and technology (for example, in physics, cybernetics, queuing theory and dynamical programming). We establish a deeper connection between stability and perfor- mance of such networks by showing that if there exist linear and piece- wise linear Lyapunov functions that show stability, then these Lyapunov functions can be used to establish geometric-type lower and upper bounds on the tail probabilities, and thus bounds on the expectation of the queue lengths. When the cost per slot is linear in the queue sizes, it is shown that the μc-rule minimizes the expected discounted cost over the infinite horizon. We consider optimal control for general networks with both wireless and wireline components and time varying channels. over Markov decision processes and takes one sample from this posterior. Reinforcement learning (RL) is a type of machine learning technique that has been used extensively in the area of computing and artificial intelligence to solve complex optimization problems. This paper uses big data and machine learning for the real-time management of Internet scale quality-of-service (QoS) route optimisation with an overlay network. We study a dynamic pricing and capacity sizing problem in a GI/GI/1 queue, where the service provider's objective is to obtain the optimal service fee $p$ and service capacity $\mu$ so as to maximize cumulative expected profit (the service revenue minus the staffing cost and delay penalty). A dynamic strategy is developed to support all traffic whenever possible, and to make optimally fair decisions about which data to serve when inputs exceed network capacity. As a paradigm for learning to control dynamical systems, RL has a rich literature. In particular, their implementation does not use arrival rate information, which is difficult to collect in many applications. Overlay networks attempt to leverage the inherent redundancy of the Internet's underlying routing infrastructure to detour packets along an alternate path when the given primary path becomes unavailable or suffers from congestion. 1. The scope of our effort is the support of quality-of-service (QoS) in overlay networks.
