Optimization Intelligence (OI), also more popularly known as Operations Research (OR) has been powering organizations to make scientific decisions for decades. The stream has gained popularity in Indian corporates too in last few years.
As the applications of Optimization Intelligence (OI) or Operations Research (OR) are endless, all of us keep finding new challenges at work where we apply seasoned concepts like linear programming, column generation, heuristics, genetic algorithms... well the list is long. There is also a deluge of solvers in the market, like GUROBI, CPLEX, XPRESS, MATLAB, AIIMS…, the list is long again. Thus, there is a lot of learning, often by trial-and-error, that we all go through in this process.
This is an informal forum (with content like INFORMS) in Bangalore where we can share such lessons with folks of OR background, and meet to discuss the theoretical and practical advances in the field of OR/OI.
