Partner Institutions


Cooperation with the Data Science Research Platform, University of Malta

The Team Smart Analytics & Reinforcement Learning cooperates with the  Data Science Research Platform der Universität Malta within the context of Research of Excellence.

In November 2021, the international project  DeepREL: Deep Reinforcement Learning for Large and Complex Systems, led by the University of Malta (Gianluca Valetino, Leander Greech) in cooperation with CERN and the IDA Lab Salzburg (Team Smart Analytics & Reinforcement Learning, Simon Hirländer, PLUS).

The research objective is to solve complex problems that are highly relevant to the control of the world’s largest particle accelerator, the Large Hardron Collider LHC at CERN. Methods from the fields of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, especially deep reinforcement learning, are used. The results obtained from this project will be transferable to many areas of automation, such as autonomous driving or manufacturing processes, and thus have a high social benefit in addition to basic research.
