    In my final volume as series editor of INFORMS Editor's Cut, I'm happy to showcase this timely topic "Advances in Integrating AI & O.R." This volume, co-edited by Ramayya Krishnan and Pascal Van Hentenryck, complements the artificial intelligence initiative at INFORMS and assembles a collection of papers from the INFORMS community that bridge the AI and O.R. communities.

    Artificial intelligence (AI) has received significant attention in recent years, primarily due to breakthroughs in game playing, computer vision, and natural language processing that have captured the imagination of the scientific (and INFORMS) community and the public at large.

    I'd like to thank Pascal and Krishnan for sticking with us and this important collection of research through a tumultuous 2020. I would also like to thank the countless editors and others who helped launch and deliver 16 volumes over the last 6 years. With this, I am passing my series editor torch to Nick Hall, who already has many updates in the works for this ever-important multimedia offering.

    Please enjoy and share the new volume here.
