IDSIA is a non-profit oriented research institutefor artificial intelligence, affiliatedwith both the University of Applied Sciencesand Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI)and the University of Lugano (USI).
IDSIA solutions help decision makers toanalyse, understand and explore complexdecisional processes and therefore tomake informed decisions to solve real-world problems. These methods integrateoptimization, artificial intelligence,operations research, modeling and simulationin a computer-based environment,in order to provide the required level ofinsight in the decisional problem.
The main goal is to design, implement,simulate and optimize dynamic and complexsystems. The development of an effectivereal-world solution therefore requiresformalization of the decisionalproblem, definition of the preference criteriaof the decision makers and possibly ofall stakeholders, simulation of the possiblescenarios in order to evaluate their performance,and an exact or heuristic optimizationmethodology to screen alternativesand focus only on efficient ones. Applicationsare nowadays pervasive, from medicineto environmental science, from logisticsystems to city planning.
