I am a Software Engineer at Julia Computing where I am involved in building tools for pharmaceutical industry. I am also a maintainer in the SciML ecosystem of packages for parameter estimation and global sensitivity analysis. I would love to talk to people about bayesian statistics and scientific machine learning as well as building software for EHRs and healthcare in general.
Optimization.jl seeks to bring together all of the optimization packages it can find, local and global, into one unified Julia interface. This means, you learn one package and you learn them all! Optimization.jl adds a few high-level features, such as integrating with automatic differentiation, to make its usage fairly simple for most cases, while allowing all of the options in a single unified interface.
