Pallets are the most common form of packaging in the retail industry. Their building involves the solution of a three-dimensional packing problem with side practical constraints such as item support and pallet stability, leading to what is known as the mixed-case palletization problem. Motivated by the fact that solving industry-size instances is still very challenging for current methods, we propose a new solution methodology that combines data analysis at the instance level and optimization to build pallets.

In creating a new partnership (“syndicate”), what division of uncertain future profit should the parties select? We consider partnerships with no substantial initial investment and no moral hazard. Parties may differ in risk attitudes and beliefs. The common approach is bargaining. We take a different approach: One party proposes to the other a contract, similarly to the principal-agent approach.

Developing trust with my clients and co-workers has been central to my career success since completing my MASc degree. I claim that automating my analytics contributed a surprising amount to developing trust in my work by making it repeatable, audit-able and alterable. In this talk, I’ll speak about those three features of automated analytics and their link to trust in the context of project examples, both successes and failures.

Screening for diseases is an important, and extensively used, public health tool; early detection can improve clinical outcomes and/or reduce the spread of infectious diseases, especially for diseases that have slow to develop and/or initially non-specific symptoms (e.g., AIDS, Zika, hepatitis). A major challenge in public health screening is to design screening policies that are capable of accurately classifying subjects in a large population with limited resources and imperfect tests.
