Technical level: Advanced
In this session i want to talk about how I have used ML, AI & IoT to solve real world complex business problems. Some of the problems I have worked on are:
1. For truck logistics company: finding optimal stations for fuelling
2. Route optimization for logistics company
3. Catchment area optimization for fishing company
4. Data centre optimization for Telcom company
In session i will share my experience of how different AI & ML alogithms like Genetic Algorithm, linear optimization, ML regression & classification models, Neural Networks were used to solve these problems.
Some of the solutions i worked on are in production in many countries across the globe with 10000’s of users using the solutions.
I won’t be talking about the platform/languages I used for solving these problems, but just advantanges and disadvantages of different approaches based on my experience.
