Even the most carefully configured simulation algorithm may perform badly unless its configuration is adapted to the dynamics of the model. To overcome this problem, we apply methods from reinforcement learning to continuously re-configure an ML-Rules simulator at runtime. ML-Rules is a rule-based modeling language primarily targeted at multi-level microbiological systems. Our results show that, for models with sufficiently diverse dynamics, an adaptation of the simulator configuration may even outperform the best-performing non-adaptive configuration (which is typically unknown anyhow).
