Self-critical sequence Broadly speaking, combinatorial optimization problems are problems that involve finding the âbestâ object from a finite set of objects. We train the Pointer Network with the TTDP problem in mind, by sampling variables that can change across tourists for a particular instance-region: starting position, starting time, time available and the scores of each point of interest.

Many real-world problems can be reduced to combinatorial optimization on a graph, where the subset or ordering of vertices that maximize some objective function must be found.
