## Applications

### Example Objectives

- efficiency
- safety
- accuracy

### Example Constraints

- cost
- weight
- (structural) integrity

### Why this is hard?

- high dimensional search spaces
- multiple competing objectives
- model uncertainty

## Queen Dido’s Problem

- you are granted a plot of land
- how do we surround it with the smallest amount of string?
