Mission imaginable: Putting ISE principles to work in Haiti

Mission imaginable: Putting ISE principles to work in Haiti

... I wanted to use a Purdue University engineering degree to help others. As a high school student semi-familiar with industrial engineering, I thought that meant creating efficient processes that helped people work better. I had no idea that, for me, it would mean moving to Haiti to create a sustainable supply chain and utilize an objective-based curriculum process to ensure bright futures for 120 Haitian students as the director of Imagine Missions Professional School.

We will address the two main uses of decision tree through two examples. The first is about a delay in delivering engineering projects, which was experienced by a global engineering company. The second is about Chase Bank’s mortgage risk, which has been excerpted from Eric Siegel’s book "Predictive Analytics: The Power to Predict Who Will Click, Buy, Lie, or Die."

Using AI to find financial opportunity in chaos

Using AI to find financial opportunity in chaos
