Allocation in Practice
Toby Walsh, University of New South Wales
: Troels Bjerre Lund
How do we allocate scarce resources? How do we fairly allocate costs? These are two pressing challenges facing society today. I discuss two recent projects concerning resource and cost allocation. In the first, we have been working with FoodBank Local, a social startup working in collaboration with FoodBank charities around the world to optimize the logistics of collecting and distributing donated food. Before we can distribute this food, we must decide how to allocate it to different charities and food kitchens. This gives rise to a fair division problem with several new dimensions, rarely considered in the literature. In the second, we have been looking at cost allocation within the distribution network of a large multinational company. This also has several new dimensions rarely considered in the literature.
