AI-enabled Simulation Modeling: Simio Neural Network Models Tutorial
Presented by: Mohammad Dehghani, Associate Teaching Professor, Northeastern University

The integration of Artificial Intelligence and simulation modeling is complementary. Simulation modeling provides high-quality labeled data, which is essential for machine learning algorithms. In return, trained neural networks can significantly enhance decision-making within simulation modeling, leading to improvements. This workshop places a strong emphasis on this integration and offers a step-by-step case study demonstrating how to leverage Simio’s newly developed Neural Network models. Participants will gain valuable insights into using this tool and harnessing AI’s potential for simulation modeling.
