CANCELLED - How Can AI Help Us Make Decisions?

Presented By School of Business and Economics, Behavioural Decision Sciences Research Interest Group and the OR Society

About this event

*Cancelled* Due to the current situation of Covid-19

This workshop will examine the interface between AI and the decision sciences. The advent of algorithms and data ubiquity has changed the decision landscape. AI is not only used to support decisions, but decisions are outsourced to it as well. Is that a good thing? Join leading researchers exploring the implications for areas such as public policy, law, insurance and health.
