The world of mathematical optimization has contributed greatly to the global economy for years. Many businesses have saved millions of dollars (and improved operational efficiencies) solving problems with this technique at the helm. In this Opex Analytics Academy session, Mike Watson was able to sit down and chat with one of the pioneers in this space, Dr. Ed Rothberg, CEO of Gurobi Optimization.
Ed led the CPLEX Optimization Team for ten years before moving on to co-found Gurobi, today’s most powerful mathematical optimization solver on the market. Mike Watson, who also brings a deep background in optimization and data science, sits with Ed to discuss a brief history of mathematical optimization, to consider where it fits amid the current barrage of Artificial Intelligence hype, and to look into the types of future innovations it will continue to drive.
This recording of the Opex Academy presents a solid understanding of the power behind mathematical optimization as the enormous value it creates in the market today as well as a sneak peek into opportunities we see it supporting in the years to come.
