On the Impact of Deep Learning-based Time-series Forecasts on Multistage Stochastic Programming Policies

Multistage stochastic programming provides a modeling framework for sequential decision-making problems that involve uncertainty. One typically overlooked aspect of this methodology is how uncertainty is incorporated into modeling. Traditionally, statistical forecasting techniques with simple forms, e.g., (first-order) autoregressive time-series models, are used to extract scenarios to be added to optimization models to represent the uncertain … Read more
