On October 23, 2023, the public lecture series “Sustainability in Computer Science” carries on with a new topic.

Nysret Musliu, an Associate Professor in Databases and Artificial Intelligence at TU Wien, will give a talk on “AI and Optimization for Sustainable Applications”.


Real-life problems in domains as diverse as health care, supply chain, production and education are frequently very challenging and their solutions impact people involved as well as the resource consumption and efficiency of operations. Optimization and AI provide robust techniques that can be employed to effectively address such problems in a variety of sustainable applications. This lecture gives an overview of various AI and optimization techniques, including problem-solving and machine-learning techniques. Through case studies in scheduling and planning, as well as food waste reduction, we will demonstrate how these techniques can be applied to solve complex problems in sustainable applications.


About Lecture Series “Sustainability in Computer Science”

The Public Lecture Series is the first of its kind in Austria, with all Austrian computer science departments and faculties participating, under the auspices of Informatik Austria. We want to raise awareness for the utmost importance of sustainability in CS, demonstrating research solutions to various problems, and triggering developments for a sustainable future.

The lecture series will be held online every Monday from 17:00-18:00. One hybrid session takes place on January 8, 2024, on-site at TU Wien and online.

Students from participating universities can register to get credits for the series. Please refer to your respective institution for registration.
