I have joined the IBM CP Optimizer R&D team to design, develop and deploy a performance testing platform allowing to measure and analyse performance of the solver. The platform is now composed of 68 processors executing continuously around 5000 different testcases in parallel, with a web interface allowing to submit test campaigns, analyse and compare results graphically.
To enhance quality of our solver, I have also developed a random problem generator allowing to submit unusual problems. This allowed to go across unpredictable paths and preventively eliminate pending problems.
I have also developed the Python interface for the IBM CP Optimizer, included in the DOcplex initiative that covers also the IBM CPLEX solve engine.
I also participate actively to the IBM Intellectual Property by writing multiple patents in various areas. I have been nominated as Master Inventor.
