Supaero Reinforcement Learning Initiative
Professors, researchers, engineers, students, researching open questions in Reinforcement Learning. Most of us are affiliated with ISAE-SUPAERO, where the team is hosted.
We work on state of the art algorithms, study their properties mathematically and empirically, and apply them to challenging problems to bridge a gap between theory and real applications. We focus on Reinforcement Learning for sequential decision making problems and its links with other disciplines (e.g. Operations Research, Evolutionary Computation, Planning, Optimization).
Autonomous vehicles, control of optimization processes, rehabilitation exoskeleton control, video games, aircraft landing scheduling, satellite resources planning, sailboat and UAV planning and control, mobile robot mission planning, computer bug tracking, fluid flows control.
SuReLI is led by Emmanuel Rachelson, with the collaboration of
Dennis Wilson — ISAE-SUPAERO associate professor — Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning
Giuseppe Ferraro — ISAE-SUPAERO lab engineer
