Zbigniew Michalewicz (University of Adelaide, Australia), Abstract: The main focus of the talk would be on AI-based business applications for transforming data into decisions, based on variety of large-scale projects executed for three companies (NuTech Solutions, SolveIT Software, and Complexica) over the last 20 years. From the perspective of such applications, several observations would be presented that relate to the current research in the EC community. The topics would include continuous versus discrete optimization, optimization of multi-component problems, single-objectivevs. multi-objective problems, the nature of optimization in dynamic environments, strategic vs. tactical optimization, synchronization between different time horizons, and explanatory features of the optimizers.
