System Dynamics (SD) is an approach to study the nonlinear behaviour of complex systems over time. SD models provide a high­level understanding of the system and aid in designing policies to achieve specific system behaviours. Conventional SD modelling requires an intensive amount of time, human resources and effort. Applying Machine Learning ...

The feeling of belongingness, to be a member of a group, is rooted in human evolutionary history. Cooperative behaviour within such groups has since been an important research topic. The evolution of cooperation in the iterated prisoner's dilemma (IPD) has been shown to be an effective tool of simulating and analysing this behaviour. However, it...

A recent advancement in Reinforcement Learning is the capability of modelling opponents. In this work, we are interested in going back to basics and testing this capability within the Iterated Prisoner's Dilemma, a simple method for modelling multi agent systems. Using the self modelling advantage actor critic model, we set up a single agent...

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, many models have been made to predict the spread and responses to it. Although moral decision-making during the uncertainty pandemics is suggested to be more motivated by individual incentive than collective incentive, decision-making in COVID-19 agent-based models is often modelled implicitly by...

Interactions in the real world are subject to mistakes and miscommunications. The presence of this noise in interactions challenges cooperation, as one party cannot determine whether the other party did not cooperate on purpose. The Prisoner's Dilemma has commonly been used to study mutual cooperation. Strategies like Tit for Tat that do well in...

Entrance tickets for cultural venues are often sold through online retailers. Internally, these retailers have access to demand insights of a large amount of globally distributed venues. Using Tiqets as our industry partner, we were able to access data from one of the largest retailers with global reach. This thesis explores the possibility of...

Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) is a generalization of classical linear programming where we restrict some (or all) variables to take integer values. Numerous real-world problems can be modeled as MILPs, such as production planning, scheduling, network design optimization and many more. MILPs are, in fact, NP-hard. State-of-the-art...

For airlines, crew costs make up the second largest expense, behind fuel costs. Because these costs are very high, there is a large potential gain in improving the crew efficiency within the bounds set by the law and collective labor agreements. This thesis investigates the dated crew pairing problem, and how the crew pairing problem can be...

This thesis has researched the automation of performance evaluation of vehicle routing heuristics. The trade-off between solution quality, which is composed of multiple variables, and runtime make performance evaluation challenging. Therefore, it is often done by human experts. The research question of this thesis is: “How can we determine a...

With the huge amount of data that is collected every day and shared on the internet, many recent studies have focused on methods to make multimedia browsing simple and efficient, investigating techniques for automatic multimedia analysis. This work specifically delves into the case of information extraction from videos, which is still an open...

Because of the transfer from brick-and-mortar stores to the web, tourism companies have had an increasing need for good recommendation systems to help the users of their websites find what they want. When developing a recommendation system for tourism, we run into a couple of problems that we would not run into when developing it for e-commerce....

Automated Planning (AP) is a key component of Artificial General Intelligence and has been successfully employed in applications ranging from scheduling observations of Hubble Space Telescope to generating dialogue agents. A significant bottleneck for its widespread adoption is acquiring accurate domain models which formally encode the planning...

Urban areas are rapidly expanding in developing countries. One of goals of the United Nations Human Settlement Programme (UN-Habitat) is to understand and guide urban development for some developing regions.<br/>Currently, the approaches that UN-Habitat is using cost plenty of workforce, material, and time. Therefore, UN-Habitat is interested in...

In this research we look into the integrated LTL routing and loading problem. A review from previous research shows that this integrated problem is novel. All previous literature that researched into an integrated routing and loading problem focused on the loading and vehicle routing problem (3L-CVRP). Different heuristics have been tested on...

For the real-world face recognition, factors such as occlusion and pose-variant (cross face) would affect the identification/verification performance. In addition, large number of classes also increase the complexity, which makes verification/identification even harder. In order to deal with these issues, how to extract discriminative embeddings...

The rail network in the Netherlands is one of the busiest in Europe. To ensure a safe and reliable infrastructure, preventive maintenance is of utmost importance. ProRail, the sole maintainer of the railway infrastructure in the Netherlands, spends hundreds of millions of dollars on maintenance each year. Due to the complexity and busyness of...

The use of certain buyer strategies in the process of property bidding is being discovered in this paper. An Agent-based model is introduced where financial statistics are based on the Dutch housing market. Three types of agents are used in this model that uses cycles of two weeks. Thee hypotheses about the market are initially formulated. In...

Gentrification, displacement and social exclusion has been a topic of debate in the city of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We use an agent-based model (ABM) to research these problems and policies to alleviate them. We focus on two phenomena, being short-term holiday rentals of homes and a universal basic income. Short-term holiday rentals is a new...

Reinforcement learning (RL) is an area of Machine Learning (ML) concerned with learning how a software-defined agent should act in an environment to maximize the rewards. Similar to many ML methods, RL suffers from the curse of dimensionality, the exponential increase in solution space with the increase in problem dimensions. Learning the...
