The ROLL team will be demonstrating their new software nicknamed NELLI at the SICSA Demofest in Glasgow on Tuesday 5th November.
Our goal is to develop an automated system for solving real optimisation problems that, like humans, continuously learns over time and improve its performance with experience. The resulting Network for Life Long Learning (NELLI) produces fast, high-quality solutions and adapts quickly to changing circumstances and problem characteristics. The efficient design of the system enables NELLI to cope with the complex constraints that characterise many real-world problem.
Key features of NELLI include:
- Automatically generated heuristics collaborate to optimise overall performance
- Using prior knowledge to quickly provide good quality solutions while continually adapting to new unseen problems
- Maintaining a memory that enables rapid production of solutions
