4/05: Jing Dong – Prediction-driven surge planning with application in the emergency department

April 5 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Zoom Webinar (Virtual)

Abstract: Optimizing emergency department (ED) nurse staffing decisions to balance the quality of service and staffing cost can be extremely challenging, especially when there is a high level of uncertainty in patient-demand. Increasing data availability and continuing advancements in predictive analytics provide an opportunity to mitigate demand-rate uncertainty by utilizing demand forecasts. In this work, we study a two-stage prediction framework that is synchronized with the base (made months in advance) and surge (made nearly real-time) staffing decisions in the…

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…

7/26: Increasing Diversity in Innovation Virtual Conference

July 26 - July 29
Virtual event

Findings by the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and leading researchers show that women, people of color, and veterans are significantly underrepresented as US patent inventors. All of the data indicates that the US has missed out on millions of inventors, impacting national innovation and economic growth. On July 26-29, the US Intellectual Property Alliance and UC Berkeley Fung Institute will host a virtual conference bringing together the USPTO, corporate legal teams, innovators, industry associations and key stakeholders across the country to focus on increasing…

09/20: David Simchi-Levi – Statistical Learning in Operations Management (virtual)

September 20 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Virtual event

Abstract: Traditionally, statistical learning is focused on either (i) online learning where data is generated online according to some unknown model; or (ii) offline learning where the entire data is available at the beginning of the process. In this talk we show that combining both approaches can accelerate learning. Specifically, we show that difficult online learning problems can be reduced to well-understood offline regression problems. We demonstrate the impact of our work in the context of product recommendation, multiclass classification…
