Dr Yuri Malitsky
I'm a post-doc at the Cork Constraint Computation Centre working with Barry O'Sullivan. My research focuses on applying machine learning techniques to improve the performance of combinatorial optimization and constraint satisfaction solvers. In particular, my work has centered around automated algorithm configuration, algorithm portfolios, algorithm scheduling, and adaptive search strategies. The goal of this study is two fold. First, it aims to develop the mechanisms to determine the structure of problems and its association with the behavior of the different solvers. Second, to develop methodologies that automatically adapt existing tools to the instances they will be evaluated on.
