Topic: Machine Learning for Supply Chains

Speaker: Mik Bertolli

Machine learning-based algorithms are the foundation of the next generation of logistics technologies. From manufacturing scheduling to supply routing, companies of any size can use existing, in-house data to increase efficiencies and drive competitive advantage. But how do you get around the hype and actually use it? This discussion will cut through to what machine really is and explore how it is different than other forecasting methods. We'll address the difficult task of getting started with it in an organization and introduce some industry examples and case studies to highlight successes and challenges in the real world.

Mik Bertolli serves as the Chief Science Officer for Avrio, leading design and implementation of cutting-edge AI tools in multiple industries, including oil & gas, training, cybersecurity, transportation, and marketing.  s a data scientist, Mik has over a decade of experience in designing and developing advanced machine learning theory and algorithms. From theoretical astrophysics to industry challenges, he delivers complex solutions to real-world problems. His work experience includes national laboratories, lead scientist for government agencies, sitting on the executive committee for the Canadian Advanced Network for Astronomical Research (CANFAR), advising US Congress and lecturing at universities across the US and Europe.

Together with his co-founder, Mik has grown Avrio from a small, two-person shop into a thriving company. Despite never accepting venture capital, Avrio was named as a top 36 startup in the South East and a top 10 startup in Tennessee. Avrio recently relocated its headquarters to Denver, CO.
