Cloud Provisioning Using Deep Reinforcement Learning

Our Chief Data Scientist Tim Oates recently co-published a research paper alongside Zhiguang Wang, Chul Gwon, and Adam Lezzi. Their work points to some compelling evidence that deep reinforcement learning can cut down on the costs of cloud computing. At eight pages, it’s not a dense read, and the results are strong and convincing. You…

Deep Learning in the Real World

Our own Chief Data Scientist Dr. Tim Oates recently give a talk at the Thug Think conference in Portland, Oregon. He focused in on reinforcement learning, a branch of machine learning with exciting applications. Whether you’re familiar or brand new to the subject, his engaging presentation is going to be of interest to you. If…

Exploration vs. Exploitation

By Dr. Tim Oates, Chief Data Scientist There’s a branch of machine learning called reinforcement learning (RL) that deals with making decisions under uncertainty.  It works a little like people do when learning to play a new video game.  You look at the screen, assess the situation, try a few things, see what works and…
