报告内容：in this talk, I will discuss about my main research areas on the use of agent-based modelling, machine learning, and optimisation methods for industry and service-related applications. Specifically, I will show how we use agent-based modelling to study interactions in product sharing, how machine learning and clustering models can be used for fault detection in the mining industry, and how meta-heuristic optimisation algorithm can be used in the service industry. I will also talk about research activities carried out by my PHD students and ongoing project have with my international collaborators.
