IRT SystemX  is organizing on September 14 the workshop “Reinforcement Learning for Networking and Security” on the Nano-INNOV site. This Workshop is co-organized with academic partners (AIO team at INRIA Paris and the IResCoMath Research Unit, Tunisia) as part of an exploratory research project funded by the IRT SystemX institute.

The workshop aims at providing forum and bring together researchers to discuss recent applications of reinforcement learning (RL) in the fields of telecommunications, transport and security. If you want to know more, join us on September 14, 2022 from 9 am to 4 pm on the Nano-INNOV site in Palaiseau or from 9:30 am to 1:15 pm on zoom.
