Roy Marsten: Chief Scientist, Emcien

Speaker Bio: Dr. Marsten, author of more than 30 papers on computational optimization in academic journals, was a professor at Northwestern University, MIT, the University of Arizona, and the Georgia Institute of Technology before becoming an entrepreneur. In 1987, Dr. Marsten founded XMP Software, which was acquired by ILOG/CPLEX (ILOG was later acquired by IBM). The optimization libraries in ILOG/CPLEX are the most widely used of their kind and drive applications inside SAP, i2 Technologies – now JDA Software – and others. He was the recipient of the Beale-Orchard-Hays Prize for Excellence in Computational Mathematics awarded by the Mathematical Programming Society. Dr. Marsten also co-founded Idmon Corp. with Ms. Subramanian. Based on their work at Idmon, Dr. Marsten and Ms. Subramanian were finalists for the Franz Edelman Prize for Excellence in Management Science awarded by the Institute for Operations Research and Management Science.

    Very interesting presentation. It does make me want to go back for some remedial training in graph theory.

      Cool! Do consider the Social Network Analysis course on coursera starting Oct 7. Should cover all of the basic concepts.

    The simplicity of the core methodology blew me away. Awesome talk.

    Excellent talk. When my kids were younger, I used to tell them that Linear Algebra is to regular algebra as "Power Boots" are to regular boots in Super Mario. (I'm a strange dad. :-) ) Graph analytics is like that for a large set of problems, and a lot of people are unaware of it.

    Roy's presentation made it clear that my thinking about the structure of data analysis has been grossly incomplete. My world is larger now.

    The methodology that Roy demonstrated was nothing short of brilliant! Very well thought out discussion that was informative and deep but presented in a way that the non-technical can understand it! Thanks Roy!

    Dr. Marsten presented on value of Non-Numeric Data so well that it made tough information easy to divest. I will definitely attend second event.

    Any good parking advice?

      There is a free parking garage at GTRI with plenty of space for everyone. It's really a great location!

    I met Raj this morning at the Big Data Mornings event. Look forward to meeting other big data fanatics and sharing stories about new use cases!
