Today, despite some efforts, most real-life combinatorial optimization problems remain out of the reach of reinforcement, The Orienteering Problem with Time Windows (OPTW) is a combinatorial optimization problem where the goal is to maximize the total scores collected from visited locations, under some time constraints. 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.
