Workshop on Machine Learning and Optimization

We kindly invite you for a one day workshop on Machine Learning for Optimization.

Ilker Birbil (University of Amsterdam), Dick den Hertog (University of Amsterdam) and Krzysztof Postek (Delft University of Technology) with the OPTIMAL consortium.

Seven speakers (five from the industry and two from the academia), each in a 45-minute talk, will provide us with a compact overview of successes, failures and key challenges to be faced by the combination ML+Optimization. Also, the physically organised (and streamed online) workshop would be an opportunity to make room for new industrial/academic collaborations.

Our confirmed excellent speakers are (academia):

Ilker Birbil (UvA)
Herke van Hoof (UvA)

and (industry):

Diederik Fokkema (ING)
Joaquim Gromicho (ORTEC, UvA)
Seppo Pieterse (Quintiq)
Max Barkhausen, Max Snijders (BCG Gamma)
Guillaume Baquiast (McKinsey/QuantumBlack)
