DAO 2017 : Data Analytics and Optimization
Call For Papers
The interplay between Optimization and Machine Learning is a fundamental step towards the modern decision sciences in the era of Big Data.
Machine learning researchers have exploited optimization models and algorithms to build automatic knowledge discovery from data while optimization approaches have latch on to machine learning because of their wide applicability and attractive theoretical properties.
The increasing complexity, size, and variety of today’s data analytics models presents new challenges for mathematical programming and optimization, and calls for both new development and enriched resurgence of operations research methods.
Optimization models and algorithms can improve the data-driven decision models by either formulating the pattern discovery and knowledge extraction problems or defining efficient algorithms for enabling machine learning at a massive scale.
This Special issue on “Data Analytics and Optimization” aims at gathering the ongoing cross-disciplinary research by involving operation research, machine learning and statistical methods to extract essential knowledge from huge volumes of data.
*Topics of Interest*
