Summarizing Text with Artificial Intelligence

Text data presents a tremendous opportunity to benefit all stakeholders of an organization – investors, employees, processes, and the all-important customer – if the organization can find a way to sift through this data in an automated way to extract key information and solve specific challenges. In that case, they could learn about their firm and start optimizing the way they operate.

Integrated Machine Learning and Mathematical Optimization

For the past several years, ML has exploded in popularity, while the excitement for MO has mostly plateaued. Why this has occurred is very much up for debate. One might surmise that ML is simply a better tool than MO, and therefore it replaced it in terms of popularity. This, however, is wrong-headed. ML and MO are typically used to solve very different problems. One might also think that problems MO has historically solved no longer exist.
