Upcoming Seminar
"Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Optimization: Opportunities for InterDisciplinary Innovation"Presentation by Dr. Radhika Kulkarni Wednesday, September 23

About the seminar: Machine learning tools and AI platforms have become prolific in many industries. Applications range from health care to financial applications to manufacturing industries. In the world of big data and ML / AI tools, there are numerous opportunities for application of optimization techniques. Large scale implementation of machine learning tools in artificial intelligence platforms require automation at several levels – increasing productivity along the entire analytics lifecycle as well as automated model selection to improve predictive models. In many of these problems, optimization techniques play an important role in finding solutions as well as improving performance. This presentation will provide several examples that describe some of these innovations in various industries as well as discuss trends and upcoming challenges for future research. Often, the mathematical model and solution are only a small part of the overall problem. It is also important to ensure the availability of the data required for the model, whether the final result is easy to interpret and sustainable in the real world and a myriad other aspects. In this talk, Kulkarni will discuss some of the practical concerns that are of equal importance: ease of implementation, acceptance of the results, safeguards needed to allow for overrides of automatic decisioning, etc.
