COURSE OBJECTIVE
Advanced course in generative artificial intelligence (AI), classical artificial intelligence and quantum computing applied to supply chain management, warehouse and inventory management, logistics, demand and customer management.
AI can be used in supply chain management to manage huge volumes of data, understand demandsupply relationships, optimize earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, EBITDA, to improve decision making in an organization as an integrated endtoend supply chain. AIbased tools can provide valuable information for inventory, logistics, warehouse efficiency, ontime delivery, and supply and demand forecasting. AI solutionbased agnostic assessment and strategies help companies improve inventory alignment and control, as well as create an intelligent strategic roadmap for supply chain and logistics.
Generative AI has become a valuable tool in various industries and has led to the success of numerous projects.
One of the main advantages of generative AI is its ability to classify and categorize information from visual or textual data. This feature allows large data sets to be organized and managed efficiently, saving time and resources that would otherwise be spent on manual analysis.
In addition, generative AI can quickly analyze and modify strategies, plans and resource allocations based on realtime data. This realtime analysis enables fast and effective decision making and adaptation to market or industry changes.
Another advantage of generative AI is its ability to generate content in various forms automatically. This feature enables faster response times and reduces the time and resources required for content creation. The content generated can be text, images, videos or audio, depending on the needs of the project.
About ML, a module on advanced data processing is presented, explaining among other topics: sampling, exploratory analysis, outlier detection, advanced segmentation techniques, feature engineering and classification algorithms.
During the course, ML and Deep Learning predictive models such as: decision trees, neural networks, Bayesian networks, Support Vector Machine, ensemble model, etc. are shown. As for neural networks, feed forward, recurrent RNN, convolutional CNN and adversarial generative architectures are presented. In addition, probabilistic machine learning models such as Gaussian processes and Bayesian neural networks are included.
Computer vision is a form of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning that allows computers to extract meaningful information from images and automate actions based on that information, quickly and on a large scale.
Computer vision has the ability to recognize patterns and make diagnoses in medical images with much greater accuracy and speed and fewer errors. It has the potential to extract information from medical images that are not visible to the human eye. Therefore, computer vision models for image classification using powerful ML models are presented in the course.
During the course real cases are addressed, among others, the early detection of obesity using classical ML models and Quantum Machine Learning (QLM), the identification and categorization of diabetic retinopathy using convolutional neural networks, drug discovery using generative neural networks and adversarial GAN.
Supply chain and logistics managers must constantly balance many, sometimes conflicting, variables to achieve business goals (e.g., abundant inventories are good for fulfilling orders and satisfying customers, but the cost can hurt the bottom line). To be efficient, it is necessary to optimize supply chain and outbound logistics parameters and balance them with changing customer demand. Everything must run like a finetuned machine. To minimize overstocking costs, you need to accurately forecast demand, ensure the right supply levels, and move supply in and product out in a streamlined and agile way.
Constrained optimization can provide valuable insights from complex data that logistics decision makers use every day. Classical computers face difficult problems with this method of generating estimates and approximations. But as data volumes increase geometrically, they hit a wall.
QUANTUM COMPUTING
Quantum Machine Learning is the integration of quantum algorithms within Machine Learning programs. Machine learning algorithms are used to compute large amounts of data, quantum machine learning uses qubits and quantum operations or specialized quantum systems to improve the speed of computation and data storage performed by a program's algorithms. For example, some mathematical and numerical techniques from quantum physics are applicable to classical deep learning. A quantum neural network has computational capabilities to decrease the number of steps, qubits used and computation time.
The important goal of the course is to show the use of quantum computation and tensor networks to improve the computation of machine learning algorithms.
In addition, the course explains quantum computation, quantum circuits, important quantum algorithms, quantum mechanics, quantum error and correction, and quantum machine learning.
But quantum computers can offer more than just very precise solutions. They can also offer a diversity of solutions, any one of which meets your optimization goals. You can get more solutions that are more accurate, using all the data you have worked so hard to collect and store. Classical computers, on the other hand, have difficulty providing accurate and quality responses to optimization requests. If they do not fail completely, they often give only a single likely answer, which may or may not be accurate.
Although quantum computers are still years away from full capability, emerging software solutions aim to bridge the worlds of classical and quantum computing by using quantumready techniques that produce better results for constrained optimization using larger data sets on classical computers and, eventually, for quantum systems. Understanding and applying quantum computing techniques today can help supply chain and logisticsdependent companies (e.g., ecommerce, manufacturing, transportation, distribution, etc.) stay ahead of the competition.
IMPORTANT
The great need to correctly apply traditional and quantum artificial intelligence in supply chains has forced us to include a very advanced validation module and powerful model risk techniques as well as probabilistic machine learning methodologies in order to know the uncertainty in the results. We have also included a module called XAI to prevent models from being black boxes and being interpretable.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
The course is aimed at Supply Chain Management professionals interested in developing powerful models of generative artificial intelligence and quantum computing applied to the Supply Chain.
For a better understanding of the topics it is necessary that the participant has knowledge of statistics and mathematics.

Module 21: Generative AI
Generative artificial intelligence is artificial intelligence capable of generating text, images, or other media, using generative models. Generative AI models learn the patterns and structure of their input training data and generate new data that has similar characteristics. Generative AI differs from other types of AI as it is about creating something new that is not modified or copied from its training data. Generative AI is a generalpurpose technology used for multiple purposes across many industries. There are many types of multimodal generative AI tasks such as text summarization that produce a shorter version of a piece of text while retaining the main ideas, creating source code from natural language code comments, reasoning through a problem to discover potential new solutions or latent details and assigning a category to a given piece of content such as a document, image, video, or audio clip among other applications.

Module 22: Quantum computing and algorithms
Objective: Quantum computing applies quantum mechanical phenomena. On a small scale, physical matter exhibits properties of both particles and waves, and quantum computing takes advantage of this behavior using specialized hardware. The basic unit of information in quantum computing is the qubit, similar to the bit in traditional digital electronics. Unlike a classical bit, a qubit can exist in a superposition of its two "basic" states, meaning that it is in both states simultaneously.

Módulo 30: Machine Learning and Quantum Machine Learning for Retail Sales Forecasting
In the context of the supply chain, demand refers to actual orders placed by customers. Demand is essential information for effective supply chain planning and management. Without accurate demand information, companies may have difficulty planning and controlling production. For example, if inaccurate demand information is transmitted down the supply chain, from bottom to top, significant distortions in production planning and order preparation can occur, leading to adverse carryover effects.
Advanced artificial intelligence and quantum computing forecasting models are applied with the goal of demand management in supply chains is to improve the visibility, predictability and reliability of demand so that companies can design and deliver products and services that meet customer needs in the most effective and efficient manner.

Quantum Computing and Machine Learning for Supply Chain Optimization
Module 31: Supply Chain Optimization
Supply chain management includes among other functions: demand management, purchasing and procurement, production, inventory management, warehousing and transportation. Supply chain optimization decisions at the strategic level are those that have a longterm impact, typically more than three years, e.g., supply chain network design or capacity planning. At the tactical level are mediumterm decisions, typically one to two years in scope, such as supplier and vendor selection, safety stock placement, production and inventory planning, among others. Operational level decisions can be as frequent as weekly or daily, such as machinery scheduling, transportation routing, etc.
Classical models such as linear programming, integer programming and nonlinear programming have been used to solve optimization problems.
However, as the number of transactions expands due to globalization, the requirement will be to solve thousands of variables in a reasonable time. The increase in the number of variables tends to exponentially increase the time required to solve these problems on classical computers. Whereas quantum computers can outperform, encoding large problems in a reasonable time and solving them much faster with quantum algorithms.
In the coming years quantum computers will reduce the costs associated with warehousing and transportation by using Quantum Machine Learning for order forecasting and quantum algorithms in route optimization.
