Scale AI Research Chair in Artificial Intelligence for Urban Mobility and Logistics
The work done under the Chair will fall under the fields of operational research and artificial intelligence. Professor Osorio and her team will work to develop modelling and optimization methods to inform the design of urban logistics and mobility systems. These methods are in line with Scale AI’s stated priority to support reductions in GHG emissions and fuel consumption.
Specifically, Ms. Osorio will apply a simulation-based optimization approach, which integrates simulation modelling and more classic optimization methods. This approach will allow for more precise predictions, and for adjustments to be made to math problems, which are sometimes too theoretical, so as to reflect the realities on the ground.
