Collaborative Classroom Series - Optimization: The Key to Analytics, Data Science and Even Fantasy Football

Monday, May 24, 2021
6:00pm – 7:00pm


Business decision making is increasingly reliant on automation, and at the core of automation is the field of optimization. This session will introduce how optimization is transforming the way that business is done, its relation to other data science disciplines, and its use in daily fantasy sports.

Join us for a collaborative virtual class and discussion with Dr. David Bergman, Professor in the Department of Operations and Information Management. Attendees will be invited to participate in solving a problem live and learn more about how Dr. Bergman used analytics to win a 2020 DraftKings Daily Fantasy Sports World Championship.
