> Solver-Aided Declarative Programming
> Abstract:
> I will summarize our work on a declarative programming language that
> offers native language support for model (or instance) finding. This
> capability can be used to express predictive (e.g. machine learning) and
> prescriptive (e.g. combinatorial optimization) analytics. The
> presentation gives an overview of the platform and the language. In
> particular, it focuses on the important role of integrity constraints,
> which are used not only for maintaining data integrity, but also, for
> the formal specification of complex optimization problems and
> probabilistic programming.
> Bio:
> Mr. Molham Aref is the Chief Executive Officer of Relational AI. Mr.
> Aref has more than 25 years of experience in developing and implementing
> enterprise-grade analytic, predictive, optimization and simulation
> solutions for the demand chain, supply chain, and revenue management
