Webinar: Building Gurobi Models from Pandas Dataframes

Event Recap

As the de-facto standard in Python for data manipulation and analysis, pandas is deeply integrated into many analytics projects and tools. Gurobi’s Python API, gurobipy, does not directly interact with standard pandas data structures, so incorporating decision optimization into data science applications is not as straightforward as it could be. For better interoperability between the two libraries, what is needed is a higher-level syntax to build optimization models directly from suitably structured pandas data.

Our solution is gurobipy-pandas, a convenient wrapper library to connect pandas with gurobipy. It enables users to efficiently build mathematical optimization models from data stored in DataFrames and Series, and to extract solutions as pandas objects. This webinar will walk through basic concepts and complete modeling examples to demonstrate best practices for using this library.
