SAMSI’s research programs are large-scale efforts focusing on interfaces among statistics, applied mathematics and other disciplinary sciences. The programs typically run a full academic year. They involve long and short term research fellows from U.S. and international institutions, and SAMSI postdoctoral fellows. Graduate students from our partner universities and from other universities, both national and international, are active participants. The programs also engage researchers working in industry, governmental agencies and national laboratories.
This program will include game theory and adversarial risk analysis topics, relate these to decision theory, and also apply decision theory to risk analysis. An exciting aspect of the program will be to address non-standard utility functions that take account of the cost of memory, computation, and human effort to set up the analysis—these considerations are directly relevant to issues that arise in machine learning and data science.
