Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and Catholic
University of Louvain, Belgium have recently partnered with
Fair Isaac Corporation
), a leading management software company, to incorporate the FICO
Xpress Optimization Suite for large-scale renewable energy
As a part of the research, LLNL needs to ascertain the
lowest-cost scheduling of electric power grids. This involves the
implementation of parallel optimization algorithms in order to
determine variable factors to economically and efficiently meet
the power requirement of a particular area. The research being
carried out at LLNL involves working with variables on a very
large scale in different weather conditions such as temperature,
wind speed and cloud cover.
FICO software will also enable researchers to work on planning
for various time scales. This software is competitive in
comparison to other similar products available in the market and
the complexities and challenges are likely to be resolved with
the use of FICO Xpress software.
By building effective optimization solutions, the FICO Xpress
Optimization Suite helps to work with high-performance algorithms
in a flexible environment and rapid application and reporting
capabilities for on-premise and cloud installations.
Fair Isaac helps businesses to make better decisions that drive
higher levels of growth, profitability and customer satisfaction.
The use of big data and mathematical algorithms to predict
consumer behavior has transformed many industries. It provides
analytics software and tools that are used across multiple
industries to manage risk, fight fraud, optimize operations and
meet strict government regulations.
Fair Isaac currently holds a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). Other stocks
