This latest Data Science Central podcast traces the history of mixed-integer programming (MIP), noting several parallels with machine learning. In the process, we briefly discuss the impact that MIP has had on a number of application domains. We then talk about how machine learning and optimization can complement each other; the former making predictions about likely future business outcomes, and the latter suggesting appropriate actions to take in order to take advantage of these outcomes.
