I have some more relatively straight forward questions about the submissions.
After reading the rules I understand that it is perfectly OK to use operations research methods instead of reinforcement learning to find the solution, is my understanding correct, please?
The time-step limit for each round is set to 1.5(height + width), however from the starting-kit it is not clear whether there is an actual time limit for each round’s computations. If there is, how is it calculated or what is the general value, please?
Is it possible for participants to modify their run.py script? i.e. Say that I would want to instantiate an object in the script that would actually do the decision making rather than the controller function, is this possible, please? The initial outlook of the run.py script seems somehow constraining to me.
Thank you very much for your answers and clarification.
