Training Data-driven Experts in OPTimization


„Big“ Data optimal nutzen – Fachleute werden fortgebildet

Datenwissenschaften wollen aus riesigen Mengen gesammelter Beobachtungen relevante Informationen extrahieren und daraus Schlussfolgerungen ziehen. Zu diesem Bereich gehören Datenanalyse, Predictive Analytics, Data Mining sowie maschinelles Lernen. Optimierung ist dabei ein Eckpfeiler der meisten hier angewandten theoretischen und algorithmischen Methoden. Das EU-finanzierte Projekt TraDE-OPT wird sich mit den Herausforderungen bei der Analyse von Daten befassen, die in großem Umfang vorliegen, heterogen, unsicher oder nur in Teilen beobachtet sind. Im Rahmen des Projekts werden 15 Fachleute in der datenwissenschaftlichen Optimierung fortgebildet. Neben einer soliden technischen Grundlage werden im Programm zusätzlich berufliche Fertigkeiten wie Management, Mittelbeschaffung, Kommunikation und Karriereplanung vermittelt.


The main goal of TraDE-Opt is the education of 15 experts in optimization for data science, with a solid multidisciplinary background, able to advance the state-of-the-art. This field is fast-developing and its reach on our life is growing both in pervasiveness and impact. The central task in data science is to extract meaningful information from huge amounts of collected observations. Optimization appears as the cornerstone of most of the theoretical and algorithmic methods employed in this area. Indeed, recent results in optimization, but also in related areas such as functional analysis, machine learning, statistics, linear algebra, signal processing, systems and control theory, graph theory, data mining, etc. already provide powerful tools for exploring the mathematical properties of the proposed models and devising effective algorithms. Despite these advances, the nature of the data to be analyzed, that are “big”, heterogeneous, uncertain, or partially observed, still poses challenges and opportunities to modern optimization. The key aspect of the TraDE-Opt research is the exploitation of structure, in the data, in the model, or in the computational platform, to derive new and more efficient algorithms with guarantees on their computational performance, based on decomposition and incremental/stochastic strategies, allowing parallel and distributed implementations. Advances in these directions will determine impressive scalability benefits to the class of the considered optimization methods, that will allow the solution of real world problems. To achieve this goal, we will offer an innovative training program, giving a solid technical background combined with employability skills: management, fund raising, communication, and career planning skills. Integrated training of the fellows takes place at the host institute and by secondments, workshops, and schools. As a result, TraDE-Opt fellows will be prepared for outstanding careers in academia or industry.
