Pattern Transfer Learning for Reinforcement Learning in Order Dispatching

27 May 2021  ·  Runzhe Wan, Sheng Zhang, Chengchun Shi, Shikai Luo, Rui Song ·

Order dispatch is one of the central problems to ride-sharing platforms. Recently, value-based reinforcement learning algorithms have shown promising performance on this problem. However, in real-world applications, the non-stationarity of the demand-supply system poses challenges to re-utilizing data generated in different time periods to learn the value function. In this work, motivated by the fact that the relative relationship between the values of some states is largely stable across various environments, we propose a pattern transfer learning framework for value-based reinforcement learning in the order dispatch problem. Our method efficiently captures the value patterns by incorporating a concordance penalty. The superior performance of the proposed method is supported by experiments.
