Using ML to optimize business outcomes

**Please join the session that is best suited to your time zone…this topic is repeated at 2 different times.**
This session will provide an introduction to applications of machine learning to optimization. Optimization (often called prescriptive analytics) is a branch of data science that recommends the best actions for maximizing a desirable outcome (or minimizing an undesirable outcome). Modern applications often involve a combination of machine learning and mathematical programming. Attendees will get an introduction to modern applications of prescriptive analytics, illustrated through a variety of real world use cases. These use cases include optimizing treatments to maximize health outcomes, optimizing pricing to maximize profits, and optimizing maintenance operations to minimize cost. A review of these real world applications will enable attendees to explore how prescriptive analytics might contribute value to their own organizations.

**Presenter:** **Mark Freeman**

As a Chief Data Scientist at IBM Consulting, he leads data science teams delivering production grade machine learning solutions to clients across multiple industries.
