On September 15, 2020, Prof. Weise introduced the team of our Institute of Applied Optimization (IAO) [应用优化研究所] to the fresh graduate students of our the School of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data [人工智能与大数据学院]. Each of our team members follows a different research direction within the overall field of Computational Intelligence, Optimization, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence. Within the framework of our research, we can offer science-centric graduate student supervision. The presentation of our group's work has been received well, and several graduate students will join our team soon. We are looking forward to welcome them!
