AI4OPT@GT moved to the 12th floor of the CODA building. Per wikipedia, “CODA is a mixed-use development at Tech Square in Midtown Atlanta. The 770,000-square-foot (72,000 m2) building contains 645,000 square feet (59,900 m2) of office space, 80,000 square feet (7,400 m2) of “high performance computing space/data center”, 30,000 square feet (2,800 m2) of street level retail space, and a 20,000-square-foot (1,900 m2) outdoor living room”.
Cuong Tran, Ferdinando Fioretto, Pascal Van Hentenryck, and Zhiyan Yao have been awarded the 2022 Caspar Bowden PET Award for Outstanding Research in Privacy Enhancing Technologies for their paper “Decision Making with Differential Privacy under the Fairness Lens” published in the Proceedings of the Thirtieth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI-21).
Check the paper Spatial Network Decomposition for Fast and Scalable AC-OPF Learning for a machine learning approach to AC-OPF. The paper combines ideas from optimization and machine learning to obtain a fast and scalable learning approach.
Pascal Van Hentenryck will deliver a keynote at the Computing in Engineering Forum at the University of Wisconsin in Madison in September 2022.
