Ian Ozsvald is an Artificial Intelligence researcher in industry, screencaster and author of The Screencasting Handbook, entrepreneurial geek, £5 App founder, ShowMeDoer.
John Montgomery: Tackling The Travelling Salesman Problem
"Using Python to explore different stochastic algorithms"
About the Travelling Saleman Problem
The Travelling Salesman Problem (TSP) is a problem in combinatorial optimization studied in operations research and theoretical computer science. Given a list of cities and their pairwise distances, the task is to find a shortest possible tour that visits each city exactly once.
