Abstract: Prof. Sang Won Yoon has been studying a variety of emerging research domains including 1) distributed decision making, coordination protocol design and collaborative control theory, 2) large-scale data analytics and predictive modeling, 3) mail-order pharmacy system design and analysis, 4) healthcare systems optimization, 5) production & manufacturing systems optimization, and 6) warehouse management and transportation. In this talk, he will focus on how to extract useful insights from expanding data sets to support intelligent decision-making processes. This research not only resides in better understanding large-scale data set by using statistical learning methodologies, but also leverages optimization, soft computing, simulation, and complex theories with conventional machine learning algorithms.
