*Please note this meetup will not be in the regular location. It will be at the CSIRO Data61 Demo Lab*
This month we will have a special meetup hosted by CSIRO Data61.
Laurine Rabusson and Jeremy Flagel will be presenting the work they have been doing at CSIRO Data61 as research students.
Title: Decision Making under Uncertainty in a Clojure Platform
Uncertainty is pervasive and affects both our economic and natural environments. It is necessary to factor in this uncertainty in order to provide robust, reliable operation plans of all kinds of supply chains in the real world. We are developing and extending a two-stage stochastic optimisation model of an agricultural supply chain to deal with this uncertainty, which is represented mathematically as a finite set of scenarios. This model has been implemented as a Clojure project, designed to facilitate unit testing, dimensional analysis, preparation of documentation and, most importantly, to allow the analyst to represent the problem and its solution as closely as possible to its mathematical description on paper. During this presentation, we will present you our work on this Clojure platform over this past four months. We will talk about our own experience understanding, improving and expanding the code with stochastic optimisation algorithms.
Laurine Rabusson is studying for a Master’s Degree in computer science in ISIMA, France. She is specialised in Network and security in computer science, and she is currently doing an internship of 5 months in CSIRO data61 in the optimisation team.
Jeremy Flagel is studying a Computer Science degree in ISIMA, France, and expects to finish in 2019. Last year he chose the department Network and Security as a speciality. At present, he is working on optimisation of mathematical problems in CSIRO.
Hope to see you all there!
