Talking Optimization at a Data Science Conference

Thanks to our partnership with Gurobi, we are participating in OSDC East.  Our talk, entitled “Unlocking Hidden Value: Data Science + Optimization” follows a theme we have discussed previously.  Many business opportunities do not end with data science.  In many cases Optimization can boost the value of predictive modeling.

ODSC East is a leading data science conference that provides a comprehensive platform for data scientists to learn, network, and stay up-to-date with the latest trends and technologies in the field.  Our talk will be on Tuesday, April 23rd.

Here is an abstract of the talk:

Data science and optimization tools naturally complement each other:  each can solve problems that the other can’t.  Yet optimization and data science are typically taught in different degree programs and practitioners of one discipline often know less than they should about the other.

This session will explain how the toolsets differ and what each brings to the table.  We’ll show real-world examples of optimization and predictive models complementing each other, point out resources where you can learn more, and give advice on when you need one vs. the other.

This session is aimed at both leaders and hands-on analysts who are interested in the big picture, but who also may want some very practical coaching.

We hope you can make it to the event in Boston.  If not, in some cases, we may be able to do a “command performance” if you are strongly interested.
