Save the date & learn from experts about Deep learning and its impact on Operation Research!

Conference Center “De Werelt”, in Lunteren, on Wednesday January 16, 2019

The Dutch Network on the Mathematics of Operations Research (LNMB) and the Dutch OR Society are organizing a their yearly seminar under the working title “Deep learning and its impact on OR”. Deep learning is booming in academia as well as business. It often works on the same problems as Operations Research. What are similarities and differences of these techniques? What can Operations Researchers learn from deep learning? How can traditional OR approaches be complemented with or improved by elements from deep learning or can OR approaches be applied to deep learning?

The organization aims for a program that covers different aspects of linking Deep learning with OR; from a vision on the future to the current state of research, and from a tutorial to real life applications.
