Seminar also includes:

★ New Features of AnyLogic 8.5 and Roadmap

We will show how new AnyLogic features are meeting industry demands in simulation modeling. We will also reveal what is on the development road map as new technologies are enabling new possibilities.

★ AnyLogic — the Simulation Platform to Train and Test Artificial Intelligence for Business Applications

As today AI developers are working on increasingly wide range of business applications, they need a powerful and realistic virtual environment to train and test AI, which naturally creates a new type of demand for simulation models as well as new requirements. We will go through major use cases and architectures of how AnyLogic simulation models integrate with machine learning environments.

★ AnyLogic Cloud — a Scalable Runtime Environment for Simulation Models Used Operationally

One of the major trends in simulation modeling today is the movement of simulation model execution to the cloud. We will showcase AnyLogic Cloud — the most advanced cloud solution for simulation available — and highlight typical use cases. Furthermore, we will demonstrate the AnyLogic Cloud open API and introduce AnyLogic Private Cloud — the fully functional product for organizations with strict security requirements.

★ Supply Chain Modeling with anyLogistix

anyLogistix by The AnyLogic Company is an analytics software for designing, optimizing and analyzing your company's supply chain. At the seminar, we will go through techniques for modeling supply chain networks and optimizing their performance. We will also demo case studies for digital supply chain design and analysis.
