“Old” AI vs Deep Learning

Vincent Gosselin from DecisionBrain wrote: “At last an article that takes a realistic view of AI rather than a sole focus on deep learning. We recently came across a failed AI project where a fairly hyped company, let’s call it company “AIE” (means “Ouch” in French) was imposed to the planning team of a large airline. The problem to solve involved scheduling thousands of tasks. The AIE company actually tried to automatically learn how to efficiently sequence tasks (based on previous manually generated schedules -> historical data) and did so for over 9 months without success… We solved the problem in 3 days using ‘old’ AI: IBM’s CP Optimizer (a powerful scheduling tool using heuristic search and constraint programming).” Link
