COMBINING MACHINE LEARNING AND MATHEMATICAL OPTIMIZATION – Part 5

Article five of five In our first article we identified four scenarios where Machine Learning can cooperate with Mathematical Optimization. Here we identify further reading of two notable resources that can help us learn more about this topic. We encourage practitioners to review these two articles. Machine learning for combinatorial optimization: A methodological tour d’horizon…

COMBINING MACHINE LEARNING AND MATHEMATICAL OPTIMIZATION – Part 3

Article three of five In our first article we identified four scenarios where Machine Learning can cooperate with Mathematical Optimization. In this article, we will consider Scenario A and present an example. Scenario A is defined as: ‘The output of ML is input to MOPT.’ This scenario is defined as: Machine learning algorithms calculate the…

COMBINING MACHINE LEARNING AND MATHEMATICAL OPTIMIZATION – Part 2

Article two of five Alkiviadis Vazacopoulos In our first article we identified four scenarios where Machine Learning can cooperate with Mathematical Optimization. In this article, we will consider Scenario D and present promising results from a real-world application. This scenario is defined as: ML can be used to help MOPT solvers to perform better not…

COMBINING MACHINE LEARNING AND MATHEMATICAL OPTIMIZATION – Part 1

Article one of five Python is a widely used high-level programming language for general-purpose programming, it is designed to be straightforward to implement. Apart from being open source programming language, Python is a great object-oriented, interpreted, and interactive programming language. It combines remarkable power with noticeably clear syntax. There are modules, classes, exceptions, very high-level…
