  • On the integration of Operations Research and Machine Learning techniques

    Ongoing

    The first objective of the project is to study the integration of Operations Research (OR) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques to solve several important problems of both domains as well as to solve problems of other fields such as economics, transportation, and manufacturing, etc. More precisely, we will design and develop new algorithms based on OR techniques to improve ML algorithms, and vice-versa new algorithms based on ML techniques to improve OR methods. Our main goal here is to provide new algorithms that outperform current ones proposed in the literature. Furthermore, we integrate both techniques to solve several hard decision-making problems arising in a number of domains such as economics, transportation, etc. To attain our objectives, we adapt modern and advanced methods by integrating new algorithmic features which exploit unique characteristics of each problem. The second objective is training postgraduate students who can work, do research and solve real-world optimization problems in the near future. The last objective is to gather several Operations Research (OR) researchers collaborating in a favorable research environment to build up a strong group working on the applied combinatorial optimization in Vietnam.
