Beschrijving

DCHI has invited Hein Fleuren, winner of the DCHI Jury Award for Best Humanitarian Innovation to talk to you about Data Science in a Humanitarian Context. Hein Fleuren, professor at Tilburg University, supported the World Food Programme with the development of the tool Optimus. The aptly named optimization tool ‘Optimus’ serves as a great example and reminder of how data science can have a considerable impact on humanitarian assistance and is a game changer for WFP. Applications of Optimus in WFP operations in Iraq and Yemen have resulted in substantial efficiency and effectiveness gains. By optimizing the composition of the food basket, Optimus reduced the cost of the operation in Iraq by 17 percent, amounting to more than a million dollars of savings every month.

For more information about Optimus please follow this link.
Another speaker with knowledge about Data Science and its application in the Humanitarian Context will soon be confirmed.
