Section: Application Domains

Application Domains

Applications of black-box algorithms occur in various domains. Industry but also researchers in other academic domains have a great need to apply black-box algorithms on a daily basis. We do not target a specific application domain and are interested in possible black-box applications stemming from various origins. This is for us intrinsic to the nature of the methods we develop that are general purpose algorithms. Hence our strategy with respect to applications can be seen as opportunistic and our main selection criteria when approached by colleagues who want to develop a collaboration around an application is whether we judge the application interesting: that is the application brings new challenges and/or gives us the opportunity to work on topics we already intended to work on.

The concrete applications related to industrial collaborations we are currently dealing with are:
