Webinars hosted by the Office Research & Publications
On 7th September, Dr. Anand Deo, Singapore University of Technology and Design, spoke on ‘Achieving Efficiency in Simulation of Distribution Tails with Self-Structuring Importance Samplers’. Motivated by the increasing adoption of models which facilitate greater automation in risk management and decision-making, Dr Deo presented a novel Importance Sampling (IS) scheme for measuring distribution tails of objectives modelled with enabling tools such as feature-based decision rules, mixed integer linear programs, deep neural networks, etc.
The Office of Research and Publications hosted another webinar titled, ‘Data and Competition: A Simple Framework’, on 28th September 2022, by Dr. Alexandre de Cornière, Toulouse School of Economics.
