    • We are looking for a highly motivated student to candidate to the PhD

    Program SEVAB (http://www.sevab.ups-tlse.fr/en/index.php

    Thesis Project Title : Propagation of information and collective decision
    making


    Propagation of information within groups is fundamental to share
    group-living benefits. Information sharing may occur in different
    behavioural contexts, such as food searching and predator avoidance, as
    found in insect swarms, bird flocks or mammal herds. Social cohesion
    relies on information diffusion, and the speed and efficiency of
    collective decisions. The framework of complex systems and
    self-organization aims to account for collective properties of groups.
    Mathematical models using simple mathematical rules and interactions at a
    local scale allow reproducing collective properties. The emerging
    collective decision, on which relies socio-spatial cohesion, depends upon
    the capacity of individual decision to influence neighbours and
    propagation at the group level. However identifying the influential
    neighbours, which are individuals are responding to and on which
    information relies the decision making is a major challenge. The project
    aims at quantifying and modeling the propagation of information and
    decision-making in groups of vertebrates. The behaviour of groups will be
    studied using already collected data on sheep, where departures of
    individuals were experimentally triggered within grazing and almost steady
    groups. The objective is to decipher, after the departure of one
    individual, which are the individuals that are influenced (followers)
    first and then the subsequent behavioural changes of other neighbours.
    Data analysis will be conducted using tools of complex systems, in
    particular of complex networks. This project, at the interface
    biology-mathematics, will allow accounting for what is observed in several
    animal species where vision if one major sensory modality of
    communication. The modeling work could assess the properties of
    propagation of information such as speed and spatial features. This would
    allow contemplating the adaptive consequences of decision making and the
    social factors which affect them.

    Project: Adaptive modeling in data-driven decision problems.

     

    Description:

    In the current information age where all sorts of data are abundantly available, business decisions are increasingly based on mathematical models and data instead of intuition and experience. This trend is reflected in the operations management literature, which has seen an explosive growth in research on how to learn optimal decisions from data as efficiently as possible. Insights from this research are increasingly and successfully being applied in practice, in a wide variety of fields and branches.

    Scientific research on how to efficiently learn from data has received a certain level of maturity, but several important questions on the mathematical modeling aspect have thus far been neglected. In particular, the question of how to select a proper mathematical model in a data-driven optimization context has received little or no attention. Model selection is a subfield of statistics and information theory; in these fields a model is good if it gives a good description or prediction of the data. But in decision problems, the quality of a model should not be judged by `goodness-of-fit’ or predictive power, but solely by its ability to produce good decisions.

    A model produces good decisions when it hits the right balance between simplicity and complexity. That means that it achieves a good trade-off between modeling errors (arising from simplifying modeling assumptions), statistical errors (which are typically larger for more complex and realistic models), and optimization errors (complex, realistic models may not allow for exact computation of the optimal decision, resulting in additional errors). It would be tremendously useful to have a generic model selection method that identifies which model achieves this optimal trade-off.

    Such a method should in particularly be able to handle the realistic, dynamic situation, where data is not something static but rather a continuously incoming stream. By continuously adapting the mathematical model upon which decisions are based, the complexity of the model is allowed to grow with the size of the data, such that at all decision moments the right balance is achieved between simplicity and complexity. This departs from the state-of-the-art in the scientific literature, where models are kept fixed throughout the time horizon, which negatively affects the quality of decisions in the short run (if overly complex models are used) or the long run (if models are too simplistic).

    The goals of this research project are to

    - develop and analyze model-selection methods for dynamic, data-driven decision problems;

    - apply them  to practical business optimization problems in pricing and revenue management.
