Automatisation of optimisation problem formulation for real-world applications
With the current development of AI and Big Data, there is a strong need in the development of the approach that allows the efficient mapping of the existing data into the optimisation problem. At the moment there is a gap that requires significant understanding and development of new methodological approaches that will allow one to provide the connection gap between existing data and problem definition.
The project will include the formulation of the approach on effective mapping of existing data and problem optimisation. The skills required by the potential applicants are good skills in object-oriented programming, skills in analytical analysis. The knowledge of AI techniques is preferable.
