Looking forward to the INFORMS conference in Houston

Stefan Karisch

Stefan Karisch

Another INFORMS Annual Meeting is fast approaching, set for Oct. 22-25 in Houston. It promises to be a great venue to meet other practitioners.

The program is shaping up to be very interesting. Several plenary and keynote presentations will be given by industry representatives, and there will be a number of practice-oriented sessions spanning a diverse set of application areas. The conference also offers plenty of networking opportunities, which I have found particularly valuable.

The Analytics Society will hold its business meeting on Monday, Oct. 23 from 6-7 p.m., when we will review the accomplishments over the last year, introduce the newly elected officers and preview the year ahead.

The Analytics Society officers and I are looking forward to seeing you in Houston.

– Stefan Karisch (stefan.e.karisch@boeing.com), president, Analytics Society of INFORMS

Fighting terrorists online: Identifying extremists before they post content

New research has found a way to identify extremists, such as those associated with the terrorist group ISIS, by monitoring their social media accounts, and can identify them even before they post threatening content. The research, “Finding Extremists in Online Social Networks,” which was recently published in the INFORMS journal Operations Research, was conducted by Tauhid Zaman of the MIT, Lt. Col. Christopher E. Marks of the U.S. Army and Jytte Klausen of Brandeis University. Read more →

Syrian conflict yields model for attrition dynamics in multilateral war

Based on their study of the Syrian Civil War that’s been raging since 2011, three researchers created a predictive model for multilateral war called the Lanchester multiduel.
