AI for Decision Making

Dr Maria Kyropoulou talking, gesticulating with her hands as she speaks.

The AI for Decision Making group aims to understand and build systems which model, support or nudge decision making of autonomous entities (be they humans or software agents).

Our research ranges from the theoretical modelling of decision making to the design and implementation of software systems deployed in the real world. More specifically, the group expertise loosely aligns with its three founding labs; Analytics and Data Science, Computational Finance & Economic Agents, and Games & AI.

We regularly publish at top venues of artificial intelligence and theoretical computer science. Some of our researchers are also members of the Centre for Computational Finance and Economic Agents, as well the research groups; Brain-Computer Interfaces and Neural Engineering, Intelligent Embedded Systems and Environments, Natural Language and Information Processing, and Robotics and Mechatronics.

Talks and seminars

We run a series of research talks and seminars throughout the year. Previous speakers have included Dr Alexandros Voudouris from the University of Oxford on "Peeking Behind the Ordinal Curtain: Improving Distortion via Cardinal Queries",  Dr Sefki Kolozali from the University of Essex who discussed "Can the symptoms of COPD patients be remotely detected?", and our Emeritus Professor Edward Tsang who presented his work on “Detecting Regime Change in Computational Finance”.
