Title: Integrated production and inbound transportation planning
Drawing on his background in information technologies, businessman Alexandre Taillefer is once again applying their incredible potential, this time to revolutionize a very conventional world: the taxi industry. Researchers at HEC Montréal are currently working on an application based on big data processing, which should allow his Téo Taxi business to serve more customers with the same number of employees.
This research project is a perfect example of the type of initiatives supported by IVADO, the Institute for Data Valorization, and which are making Montréal a world leader in big data mining.
Professor-researcher Jean-François Cordeau, holder of the Chair in Logistics and Transportation at HEC Montréal, and Master’s student Charly Robinson La Rocca explain exactly what they are working on.
