4/19: Amy Cohn – From Theory to Practice: Challenges and Solutions for Solving Real-World Multi-Criteria “Optimization” Problems in Healthcare Personnel Scheduling

April 19 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Zoom Webinar (Virtual)

Abstract:  Healthcare personnel scheduling problems look on the surface to be clear candidates for combinatorial optimization techniques such as integer programming. A key challenge, however, is the lack of a single, well-defined objective function. Instead, there are many competing metrics of importance including service coverage and patient care, provider well-being and satisfaction, and (in the case of medical trainees) educational considerations. In this talk, I will consider a number of personnel scheduling problems from the University of Michigan health system,…

4/26: Pascal Van Hentenryck – End-to-End Learning and Optimization for Engineering Applications

April 26 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Zoom Webinar (Virtual)

Abstract: This talk studies how to tightly integrate machine learning and optimization for solving complex engineering problems. It considers case studies in ride-hailing systems, public transit, and power systems, and demonstrates the benefits of this integration on large-scale optimization problems. In particular, the talk describes how machine learning can deliver optimization proxies that can be integrated in an end-to-end optimization pipeline, and how to optimize over machine models capturing human preferences. The talk concludes with a discussion of the many…
