QT Operations Optimization Team won the Best Prize in the EMO 2021 HUAWEI Logistics Competition on March 31st, 2021. The team was later invited to give spot-light talks and present scholarly research in the field at the 11th International Conference on Evolutionary Multi-Criterion Optimization (EMO 2021).
The competition was co-hosted by the International Conference on EMO and Huawei Noah’s Ark Lab. Starting from November 2020, around 500 international participants have registered to join the competition. In the end, only 22 teams submitted a solution that passed the constraint checking due to the high complexity of the problem. QT’s team built a project named Effective Algorithm Design of Routing and Packing Mixture Problem According to the Characteristics of Data with objectives i.e. maximizing loading rate, minimizing traveling distance and using evaluation metric and max hyper-volume metric.
Zhang Yan, the head of QT Operations Optimization Team and a senior algorithm expert, led the team to win the first place in the comprehensive evaluation of the competition with an absolute leading score.
