Multi-dimensional, continuous, non-differentiable, nonlinear, non-Gaussian problems must be solved in real-time. Most existing techniques for stochastic planning, network analysis and reinforcement learning are therefore inapplicable due to the initial complexity of the problem statements.
One approach towards a solution employs Bayesian optimization methods that dynamically trade-off exploration (minimizing uncertainty in unknown parts of the policy space) against exploitation (capitalizing on the current maximal solution).
