Add Optimization to Your Data Science Analytics Toolbox

Why Should Data Scientists Use Optimization?

Learn how Mathematical Optimization, specifically Mixed Integer Programming (MIP), is used to solve a large variety of problems within multiple industries. This powerful technology is complementary to Machine Learning and should be a part of every data scientist’s analytics toolbox.

Mathematical Optimization

Mathematical optimization, specifically Mixed Integer Programming (MIP), is a technology that is used to solve a large variety of problems within multiple industries, including supply chain planning, electrical power generation and distribution, computational finance, sports scheduling, and many more. This powerful technology is complementary to Machine Learning and should be a part of every data scientist’s analytics toolbox.

More than 2,400 companies in over 40 industries turn data into smarter decisions with Gurobi. The Gurobi Optimizer enables users to state their toughest business problems as mathematical models and then finds the best solution out of trillions of possibilities. Gurobi Optimizer can also become a decision-making assistant, guiding the choices of a skilled expert or even run in fully autonomous mode without human intervention.

Code Examples

Functional Code Examples
We see more and more companies building applications that combine machine learning and optimization. Often, machine learning is used to make predictions of what is likely to happen, and optimization is then applied to provide solutions to the problem.
