    Talk Title: The Case of Infrastructure Optimization

    Series: Center for AI in Society (CAIS) Seminar Series

    Abstract: This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Computer Science Research Colloquium.

    In the last decade, massive amount of information has been collected about critical infrastructures, including the transportation network and the electrical power system. These data sets, together with progress in Artificial Intelligence and Operations Research, make it possible to analyze, predict, and optimize these infrastructures with unprecedented fidelity. This talk demonstrates the societal benefits of this transformation on a number of case studies in evacuation planning, public transportation, and power restoration.

    Biography: Dr. Pascal Van Hentenryck is the Seth Bonder Collegiate Professor of Engineering at the University of Michigan. He is Professor of Industrial and Operations Engineering, Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and core faculty in the Michigan Institute of Data Science. He is the author of the pioneering CHIP and OPL optimization systems, which have been widely used in academia and industry. Dr. Van Hentenryck is the author of five MIT Press books and is a fellow of AAAI and INFORMS.
