Video: simulation and reinforcement learning – panel discussion


Video: simulation and reinforcement learning – panel discussion

The concepts and the business case for using simulation with reinforcement learning are highlighted by the panelists as they discuss a series of questions from Dr. Anand Rao, PwC Partner and Global AI Lead. With commercial examples that highlight the successes and the challenges of working with the technologies, the participants demonstrate that simulation and deep reinforcement learning are especially suited.

Here is the recording of the session from the 2019 AnyLogic Conference. It’s not the shortest video on our YouTube Channel but it is interesting and informative – cast it to a big screen if you can! Enjoy!

Webinar: How to train a policy for controlling a machine (using simulation and deep reinforcement learning)


Webinar: How to train a policy for controlling a machine (using simulation and deep reinforcement learning)

The How to train a policy for controlling a machine webinar demonstrated the use of a simulation environment in deep reinforcement learning. The recording is available below, along with the supplementary materials – so you can try it out for yourself and explore some of the possibilities.

The materials above in combination with the video recording of the webinar cover everything that is needed to reproduce the entire training setup.

How to take GIS data offline in AnyLogic


How to take GIS data offline in AnyLogic

Use GIS mapping and routing data when offline. Here is a how-to that shows how simulation models can run standalone and work when internet access is restricted, slow, or not possible at all. All the data needed can be downloaded and stored for AnyLogic to access offline.

This video demonstrates how to download GIS data for your simulation, including how to avoid large file sizes. The video also details file storage and how AnyLogic is configured to work with offline GIS data. Watch the video...

Oil production maintenance planning at Argentina’s largest company


Oil production maintenance planning at Argentina’s largest company

YPF is the largest oil producer in Argentina. It has 43% of the oil and gas production market and 58% of the gasoline market in the country. They hired consultants from Continente Siete to develop a decision support system (DSS) for determining work schedules.

The new maintenance planning system helped YPF save $18 million annually at the pilot implementation site. Forecasts suggest, the integration of the DSS with the work processes of other sites should save the company another $234 million per year.

Video presentations: Developments in simulation from the AnyLogic Conference ‘18

Many interesting talks were given at the AnyLogic Conference, here they are, captured on video. Topics include: Industry 4.0, artificial intelligence, and digital twins, to name just a few. There is also a detailed introduction to the new Material Handling Library and best practices for Beginner, Advanced, and ‘Crack’ AnyLogic users.

These videos illustrate how AnyLogic simulation software is being applied across multiple industries to solve real-world problems and deliver the latest advances most effectively.
