Innocentive & OR-ers

On October 20, 2008, Posted by , In business,operations research, With No Comments

I found about Innocentive (Innovation + Incentive) about a year ago when I bought the book Wikinomics.

The basics of the scheme are: I throw a glove and loads of you take it!, a company has a problem and "hires" loads of brilliant minds on the web, just rewarding the best solution. As you can imagine, it’s a cost-efficient way of having an outsourced R&D department (legal matters are really taken car of too).

For what to this blog matters is the good opportunities for OR-ers Innocentive has; sections like ‘Mathematics and Statistics’, ‘Computer Science and IT’, or even  ‘Business and Enterpreneurship’, hold many challenges suitable for our profession.

So, let’s go for the money!!! and, of course, the thrill of solving world problems.
