Abstract : The study focused on developing new bandit algorithms for online optimization (e.g. matching tasks to human agents). The attached technical reports provide details on the formulations and results. Specifically, the technical reports focused on a backlog minimization formulation for matching tasks and agents, as well as a contextual bandit formulation focusing on dimensionality reduction.
