ALOP Colloquium with Gabriele Dragotto
July 17 / 16:00 - 17:00
On Monday, July 17, 2023 at 16:00 c.t. Dr. Gabriele Dragotto, Princeton University, will speak at the ALOP Colloquium about his recent work:
Learn-and-Play: Data, Agents, and Interactions
How should an energy company determine its optimal production schedule? How should transport authorities design transportation networks? How should graduate students from medical schools be matched with residency training? In all these contexts, decision-making is rarely an individual task; on the contrary, it often involves the mutual interaction of several self-interested decision-makers deciding by solving optimization problems. However, the agents’ self-driven behavior often conflicts with the greater societal goals; in such cases, external regulators (e.g., governments) can intervene in the agents’ interaction via incentives, laws, and regulations. This talk provides a method for learning the agents’ preferences from data to design prescriptive interventions that possibly improve social welfare.
Please join us at 16:00 c.t. in HS 10.
