Q&A: Hybrid Dynamic Models in COVID-19 Planning and Beyond


Q&A: Hybrid Dynamic Models in COVID-19 Planning and Beyond

The webinar Hybrid Dynamic Models in COVID-19 Planning and Beyond drew in a record number of attendees and prompted some great questions around the theme of simulation modeling and healthcare planning.

Dr. Nathaniel Osgood, a Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Associate Faculty in the Department of Community Health & Epidemiology at the University of Saskatchewan, provided great insight into simulation modeling related to healthcare. Read on for the webinar details, recording, and Dr. Nathaniel Osgood’s Q&A answers.

Using Simulation to Train and Test Artificial Intelligence for Business Applications


Using Simulation to Train and Test Artificial Intelligence for Business Applications

The relationship between simulation and artificial intelligence is increasingly close, especially for deep reinforcement learning. The AnyLogic Company CEO, Dr. Andrei Borshchev, explores this trend in Using Simulation to Train and Test Artificial Intelligence for Business Applications, a presentation given at the GE EDGE & Controls Symposium 2019 in Niskayuna, NY.

Here is a brief summary of the video recording with links. Check it out and see how AI and simulation are developing together...

Video: simulation and reinforcement learning – panel discussion

The concepts and the business case for using simulation with reinforcement learning are highlighted by the panelists as they discuss a series of questions from Dr. Anand Rao, PwC Partner and Global AI Lead. With commercial examples that highlight the successes and the challenges of working with the technologies, the participants demonstrate that simulation and deep reinforcement learning are especially suited.

Here is the recording of the session from the 2019 AnyLogic Conference. It’s not the shortest video on our YouTube Channel but it is interesting and informative – cast it to a big screen if you can! Enjoy!
