MODRL/D-AM: Multiobjective Deep Reinforcement Learning Algorithm Using Decomposition and Attention Model for Multiobjective Optimization

13 Feb 2020  ·  Hong Wu, Jiahai Wang, Zizhen Zhang ·

Recently, a deep reinforcement learning method is proposed to solve multiobjective optimization problem. In this method, the multiobjective optimization problem is decomposed to a number of single-objective optimization subproblems and all the subproblems are optimized in a collaborative manner. Each subproblem is modeled with a pointer network and the model is trained with reinforcement learning. However, when pointer network extracts the features of an instance, it ignores the underlying structure information of the input nodes. Thus, this paper proposes a multiobjective deep reinforcement learning method using decomposition and attention model to solve multiobjective optimization problem. In our method, each subproblem is solved by an attention model, which can exploit the structure features as well as node features of input nodes. The experiment results on multiobjective travelling salesman problem show the proposed algorithm achieves better performance compared with the previous method.
