The LION community

The LIONcommunity page contains mixed materials about machine learning and optimization (for prescriptive analytics) made available by our lab and by a growing community of active researchers and users, in particular slides related to the LIONbook, usage cases in selected application areas, tutorial movies, etc.
Feel free to contact us if you have interesting material which you would like to make available.


For training and class usage

The selection of a subset of chapters corresponds to topics appropriate for an introductory course in LION (approximately 50 hours including exercises). The original Powerpoint version is also included so that you can adapt text and slides to your needs and personalize them.
