Abstract: 

 In this talk I review a couple of applications on Big Data that I personally like and I try to explain my point of view as a Mathematical Optimizer -- especially concerned with discrete (integer) decisions -- on the subject.  I advocate a tight integration of Data Mining, Machine Learning and Mathematical Optimization (among others) to deal with the challenges of decision-making in Data Science.  Those challenges are the core of the mission of the Canada Excellence Research Chair in "Data Science for Real-time Decision Making” that I hold.
