Our work on self-design/self improved neural network for predicting multi-phase flow in porous media accepted by IJNAMG
Predicting the hysteresis retention behaviors of wetted porous media with a hand-crafted model can be a difficult task, especially for deformable porous media undergoing multiple wetting and drying cycles. In this, work, we introduce a model-free reinforcement learning algorithm that functions as an AI agent to design a recurrent neural network that predicts the water recurrent of a porous medium. As such, the AI agent may conduct numerous trial-and-errors to fine-tune the hyperparameters and design the neural network that yields the optimal performance. Preprint available at [URL].
