1st IEEE International Conference on Autonomic Computing and Self-Organizing Systems (ACSOS 2020)Best Paper Award erhalten!

Mit ihrem Paper über Q-Learning zur Verbesserung der Offloading-Entscheidungen von FPGA-Berechnungen auf autonomen, vernetzten Sensoragenten haben Alwyn Burger, David King und Gregor Schiele den diesjährigen Best Paper Award auf der ACSOS 2020 Konferenz gewonnen!

"[...]In this article, we present an array of self-aware sensors who use Q-learning to develop a policy that guides device reaction to various environmental stimuli. The novelty lies in the use of field programmable gate arrays embedded on the sensors that take into account internal system state, configuration, and learned state-action pairs, that guide device decisions in order to meet system demands. Experiments show that even relatively simple reward functions develop Q-learning policies that yield positive device behaviors in dynamic environments."
