#frAIday

All you want to know about Artificial Intelligence.


Welcome to a series of inspiring talks on artificial intelligence by Umea University researchers, as well as internationally acclaimed experts.

Participating in #frAiday is your opportunity to share your experience and knowledge about artificial intelligence, learn more about the field, discuss a wide range of perspectives on AI, and meet new people.

Time: Fridays, 12:15 – 13:00
Place: Online via Zoom, due to new regional restrictions. The event is open to everyone who is interested in AI.

Empirical Model Learning

Michela Milano professor of Artificial Intelligence at DISI – University of Bologna; Head of Centro Interdipartimentale Alma Mater Research Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence — (Alma AI). 

 

 

 

Abstract

Designing good models is one of the main challenges for obtaining realistic and useful decision support and optimization systems. Traditionally combinatorial models are crafted by interacting with domain experts with limited accuracy guarantees. Nowadays we have access to data sets of unprecedented scale and accuracy about the systems we are deciding on.
In this talk we propose a methodology called Empirical Model Learning that uses machine learning to extract data-driven decision model components and integrates them into an expert-designed decision model. We outline the main domains where EML could be useful and we show how to ground Empirical Model Learning on some applications.
