**Upcoming DSC Webinar**

- Optimization and The NFL’s Toughest Scheduling Problem - June 23

At first glance, the NFL’s scheduling problem seems simple: 5 people have 12 weeks to schedule 256 games over the course of a 17-week season. The scenarios are potentially well into the quadrillions. In this latest Data Science Central webinar, you will learn how the NFL began using Gurobi’s mathematical optimization solver to tackle this complex scheduling problem. Register today.
