MediolaNum 2018

We are pleased to announce the second edition of MediolaNum, the meeting that aims at building connections and sharing knowledge among young researchers from the Universities of Milano and itsneighborhood, working in the field of numerical analysis.

After its first edition at Università Statale di Milano, this year the event will be hosted by the University of **Milano - Bicocca**. The conference will take place in the afternoon of **May 10th 2018** in room 3014 in the Department of Mathematics, building U5, via Cozzi 55, Milano.

Lunedí 5 Febbraio SEMINAR ON BIG DATA, OPTIMIZATION AND LEARNING

11:00 – 13:00

Prof. Andrea Lodi

In this talk I review a couple of applications on Big Data that I personally like and I try to explain my point

of view as a Mathematical Optimizer – especially concerned with discrete (integer) decisions – on the

subject. I advocate a tight integration of Machine Learning and Mathematical Optimization (among

others) to deal with the challenges of decision-making in Data Science. For such an integration I try to

answer three questions:

1) what can optimization do for machine learning?

2) what can machine learning do for optimization?

3) which new applications can be solved by the combination of machine learning and optimization?ORGANISERS
