I am fairly new to the operations research world. In fact, as of writing I am only halfway through my undergraduate years to earn a B.S. in Mathematics. The OR/MS career came to my attention in the middle of my freshman year when I was exploring mathematics-based career options that weren't actuarial science. Since then, I have tried to learn what I can about the vision of the field and the steps I can take to prepare for entry. The advice I read online emphasizes gaining technical skills. Given the increasing digitization of society and the reliance of OR/MS on the volumes of data to which technology gives us access, this doesn't come as a surprise. Knowing ...

The Certified Analytics Professional Code of Ethics (See CAP Ethics ) is very important to me personally and professionally in my role as a Chief Analytics Officer and in my conduct with clients in the healthcare domain. I work closely with medical professionals in defining and implementing methods for guiding intervention at the point-of-care per the practice of medicine. It occurred to me that while there are many analytics professionals who ply their practice to healthcare, it might be useful to share a particular application relative to the real-time intervention and guidance of interventions relative to patient care. An area of increasing importance and ...

To be fair, research has already demonstrated that humans do not need much in the way of prompting to treat and interact with technology as if it was human [1]. Yet, the current trend toward designing robots to be personal assistants, companions and even lovers may have ...
