  • The Business Intelligence Laboratory +

      One of the primary objectives of the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is to provide computational tools to support decision-making processes carried out by humans. The three major tasks in which computationally automated tools can greatly assist human decision makers are as follows. Obtaining information relevant to the decision task at hand, helping the human decision maker identify the actual space of alternatives. The abundance of information available in data repositories provides convenient grounds for automated systems to extract information from, yet poses extremely difficult challenges due to the variety and quantities of available data. Modeling and reasoning about Read More
