Session 1: Optimisation techniques and their application in the real world

As business focuses on increasing productivity, there growing demand to use machine learning and optimisation techniques to change we way we do business. Alon will talk through practical and technical applications of a variety of optimisation techniques, that span the gamut of linear & smooth problems, to those requiring genetic algorithms and other exotic techniques to solve. In addition, he will focus on the practical roadblocks that have hampered the use of optimisation techniques in the past, and how businesses have been able to work through those challenges. The talk will include a range of practical, anonymised case studies, across a range of sectors.
