This presentation looks at some projects we are currently working on, which bridge knowledge from areas of informatics and psychology in order to add value to three areas of Business: security, pickup and delivery, and healthcare. We look at human heuristics and performance in both Euclidean optimisation problems and draw comparisons to computation approaches. In the end, we ask whether studying the human approach to these problems can help us create better algorithms. We also explore possible degradation of human performance on variants of the travelling salesperson problem and how it correlates to various tests used in measures of cognitive decline.
