COVID19: AIRO resources for emergency

In the emergency situation the planet is currently experiencing, the need to make the best use of available resources emerges strongly. Unfortunately, it is precisely in emergencies that manual planning based on experience is often inadequate, as large variations in supply and demand of essential goods generate unexpected bottlenecks. Operations Research offers automatic planning tools, based on optimization techniques, that can find the best possible solutions to a wide variety of organizational problems. AIRO has put its expertise at the service of the community to deal with emergencies related to the Covid-19 pandemic; this page offers a sampling of the tools developed by AIRO members.
