The low altitude and relatively high speed of the V1 meant that standard AA guns were not capable of hitting it […]

Advanced machine learning algorithms – helping to model supply chains

Modern supply chains are complex dynamic systems with often counter-intuitive dynamics that are subject to fluctuating supply and demand. The world economy and the delivery of vital commodities depends on these globe-spanning networks. Mathematical models of the supply chain can help but they are difficult and expensive to create, and out-of-date almost as soon as […]
