Talk 2 – The Science of Better: An Introduction to Operations Research and Its Applications
Speaker: Andrew Yap
Operations Research, also known as management science, is one of the many fields of applied mathematics within the data science ecosystem. It focuses on applying analytical methods and mathematical modelling to complex systems in order to make better decisions. Although it is not as “hot” as deep learning and artificial intelligence, it has been widely used in industry since the mid-20th century in areas such as airline scheduling, quantitative finance, and logistics optimization. This talk will go through a brief history of OR, its core principles and concepts, and its applications in our daily lives.
Andrew S. Yap is an operations research geek turned analytics and data science advocate. He currently heads the Analytics Consulting Group at Nexus Technologies, Inc., providing valuable insights to clients through managed data science services and tailored analytics solutions. Previously, he worked with Walmart’s e-Commerce division and Meralco’s strategy group, applying operations research and analytical methods to make processes more efficient. He holds a Master of Engineering.
