This Friday, September 29, 2023 at 10:00am EST join the Department of Computer Science at Boston University Metropolitan College for a research seminar with Dr. Shahram Rahimi, Gloria & Douglas Marchant Endowed Chair, Professor, and Head of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Mississippi State University. Entitled “Foresight: A Game-Theory Hybrid Algorithm with Reinforcement-Learning for Predictive Analytics” this virtual seminar will be moderated by Assistant Professor Reza Rawassizadeh.
The abstract for “Foresight: A Game-Theory Hybrid Algorithm with Reinforcement-Learning for Predictive Analytics” is as follows:
An innovative and forward-looking hybrid predictive analytics algorithm will be presented. Unlike traditional machine learning-based technologies, Foresight leverages the current dynamics rather than relying solely on historical data analysis to make accurate predictions. This algorithm incorporates game theory, expected utility and median vector theories, and reinforcement learning. One of the key differentiators of Foresight is its incorporation of reinforcement learning, which enables the modeling of players’ reasoning abilities in assessing risks. This mechanism enhances the algorithm’s predictive capabilities, particularly when applied to complex problems involving multiple stakeholders with conflicting interests in economic, business, or political issues. By accounting for these complexities, Foresight becomes a valuable tool in predicting outcomes and informing decision-making processes. To demonstrate the effectiveness of this algorithm, we will illustrate several compelling case studies, showcasing its accuracy and performance in real-world scenarios. These case studies will highlight the algorithm’s ability to anticipate outcomes in compound problems, displaying its reliability and practicality.
