AI Tags - how to correctly indicate the methods you use in a submission?

‘’‘The top three teams in the final round which use a reinforcement learning approach for their winning submission will be awarded one travel grant each.’’’

So how are other machine learning models treated?

Is a hybrid of reinforcement learning and some form of heuristics still in the reinforcement learning category?

Hey @AntiSquid, sorry for the delay.

Yes, a hybrid solution using reinforcement learning and some form of heuristics would still fit in the RL category. If the heuristics involve some heavy planning, it should be tagged as RL + OR, which still makes the submission applicable for the RL prizes.

Any approach which includes RL in a meaningful way will be considered for RL prizes.

The final decision will be taken by the organizers. If you are not sure if a specific method would be considered as RL or not, feel free to reach out to us using a private channel of communication with a small description of your approach.
