Brown CS Professor Pascal Van Hentenryck – a world-renowned pioneer in optimization technology – founded Providence-based Dynadec in 2008 to help businesses optimize the decisions and processes critical to success. At the next Geek Dinner, Pascal will give an overview of his fascinating, fast-growing company, as well showing its cutting-edge optimization platform – Comet – in action. These are jaw-dropping demonstrations of how Dynadec provides invaluable insights into a broad range of applications – everything from vehicle routing to workforce management to resource scheduling.
