Artelys Knitro won the expansive single objective track of the 2019 BBComp edition. This accomplishment highlights Artelys Knitro excellent performance and robustness in the field of Derivative-Free Optimization (DFO).
BBComp is a continuous black-box optimization competition where test problems are truly black boxes for participants as no assumptions can be made about the analytic form of the function to be optimized (e.g., being linear or quadratic).
The purpose of the BBComp challenge is to find the optimal objective value to a given black-box problem with a limited function evaluation budget. Artelys Knitro embeds several black-box specializations to efficiently solve such problems. The Sequential Quadratic Programming (SQP) algorithm combined with a dedicated termination criteria makes the best use of the function evaluation budget.
Such black-box formulations are frequent in several application fields, for example when optimizing networks or in blending problems. In particular, relying on external simulators usually prevents the solver from exploiting the optimization problem’s analytical formulation.
— We are pleased to announce that Artelys Knitro 14.0 is now available! This new version enables compagnies to solve complex non-linear optimization problems with unprecedented efficency and precision.
Artelys to participate in the demonstration of digital twins for optimal grid and market actions in Europe
— Artelys is involved in the three-year Horizon Europe project TwinEU, which aims to create a digital twin of the entire European electricity grid with a unique consortium bringing together grid and market operators, research entities and technology providers.
— Planning for the energy transition requires the ability to optimize energy system development pathways, considering complex interactions and constraints, particularly concerning interactions between sectors and vectors. In this context, Artelys has developed a new method for solving these large-scale mathematical problems.
— The stakes of Artificial Intelligence (AI) have become a strategic issue for companies, regardless of their field of activity or size. As an expert, Artelys provides you with full assistance, from the design stage to the implementation of your first AI solution, by building with and for your team a roadmap tailored to your business.
