Paul Laughlin was a keynote speaker at the annual Analytics, OR & AI Summit run by The OR Society. Due to COVID19 lockdown, this year’s event was hosted online via a virtual conference.

This was a really engaging & educational event covering a wide range of topics from technical to softer skills, ethical issues to statistical best practice.

Thinking more deeply about Analytics, OR & AI with The OR Society – Customer Insight Leader

I had the pleasure of attending & speaking at The Operational Research (OR) Societies’ ninth annual summit ( Analytics & AI Summit 2021 or #AS21). Due to the global pandemic & UK lockdown, this was held online but was nonetheless well worth attending & engaging.

Thanks once again to The OR Society for this invitation & congratulations on an effective enjoyable online Analytic, OR & AI Summit 2021.
