讲座摘要:

We study the multi-period multi-objective online ride-matching problem, where the ride-sourcingshared transportation platform needs to match passengers and drivers in real time without observing future information, considering multiple objectives such as pick-up time, platform revenue, and service quality. We develop an efficient online matching policy that adaptively balances the trade-offs between multiple objectives in a dynamic setting and provide theoretical performance guarantee for the policy. We prove that the proposed adaptive matching policy can achieve the solution that minimizes the Euclidean distance to any pre-determined multi-objective target. Through numerical experiments and industrial testing using real data from a ride-sourcing platform, we demonstrate that our approach is able to obtain a delicate balance between multiple objectives and bring value to all the stakeholders in the ride-sourcing ecosystem comparing to benchmark policies: (1) drivers providing better service earn higher incomes; (2) passengers receive better service at the expense of a small increase in pick-up time; (3) the platform obtains a higher total revenue.
