Andrea Lodi

Campus Montréal asked researchers and members of our academic community “What would your world cup aspirations be?” In other words, what do they hope to accomplish in their research or academic career? Meet the talented individuals who answered the question here.

Andrea Lodi
Professor, Department of Mathematical and Industrial Engineering, Polytechnique Montréal
Holder of the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Data Science for Real-Time Decision-Making

“The mathematical component of decision making has always been at the core of my research. I’m interested in combining data science, machine learning and operational research to facilitate how we make decisions. This new approach radically transforms our way of approaching Big Data and optimizes the decision-making process. And decision making is at the heart of intelligent behaviour which, in turn, characterizes AI. It is the new frontier.”

Andrea Lodi is part of the Institute for Data Valorisation (IVADO) with more than 560 graduate students and 90 research professors from HEC Montréal, Polytechnique Montréal and Université de Montréal. IVADO is helping propel Montreal to a world leadership position in Big Data.
