We have submitted Almost Sure Convergence of Dropout Algorithms for Neural Networks, and it is currently under review. This is joint work between Albert Senen-Cerda and myself.
On March 29th, 2019, Pascal Lagerweij defended his MSc thesis Reinforcement Learning in Block Markov Chains. His committee consisted of prof.dr.ir Piet Van Mieghem, dr. Matthijs Spaan, and myself (as daily supervisor). Pascal joined our research group Network Architectures and Services on May 22nd, 2018.
We have submitted Online Network Optimization Using Product-Form Markov Processes, and it is currently under review. It is joint work between Jaron Sanders, Sem Borst, and Johan van Leeuwaarden.
