Speech Title: A unified optimal control system with federated learning and applications
We present our studies based on a unified optimal control system with federated learning and applications. The constraint of this unified system is represented by a stochastic differential equation (SDE) with Levy jumps and boundary reflection, which includes many practical buffer storage (i.e., queueing) systems and conventional SDEs as special cases. The objective functional can take different forms corresponding to their associated practical systems. The optimal and Nash equilibrium control policies are proposed through designing corresponding algorithms in a federated learning way with the time evolution. The policies cover both conventional parameter control (e.g., drift and diffusion control) policies and jump size control (e.g., impulse and singular control) policies. In real-world systems such as metaverse, quantum computing, and 6G/6G+ wireless systems, these policies may represent the demand/resource rate, pricing, and sequential batch assembly policies. Simulation examples will be provided to illustrate the effectiveness of our developed algorithms and policies.
