Abstract: End-to-End Learning and Optimization for Engineering Applications

This talk studies how to fuse of machine learning and optimization for solving complex engineering problems. It considers case studies in ride-hailing systems, public transit, and power systems, and demonstrates the benefits of this fusion on large-scale optimization problems. In particular, the talk will describe how machine learning can deliver optimization proxies that can be integrated in an end-to-end optimization pipeline, and how to optimize over machine models capturing human preferences. The talk will conclude with a discussion of the many challenges that remain to be solved.
