Talk Abstracts: Using Deep Reinforcement Learning for More Effective Type-1 Diabetic Care with Liliana Cruz-Lopez, Columbia University: Traditionally model driven insulin controllers are utilized for effective management of blood glucose for diabetic patients. Given the reactive interplay between insulin & the resulting blood glucose, we adapted a Deep Deterministic Policy Gradient (DDPG) algorithm to propose a Deep Reinforcement Learning-based insulin controller & analyze its efficacy in achieving better glucose control. This talk will explore how we tested & applied our Deep Reinforcement Learning model using simulations, while comparing them with the widely used Padova model for efficacy.
