Seminar Discounted Fully Probabilistic Design of Decision Strategy


The seminar is postponed.

The speaker will be Soňa Molnárová, the seminar will be held xxx in the AS-meeting room 474.

This topic concerns the issue of decreased utility of future rewards, referred to as discounting, while utilizing fully probabilistic design (FPD) of decision strategies. FPD obtains optimal policy for decision task using only probability distributions. Herein lies it’s main asset. It also covers Markov decision processes (MDP) as a special case. Methods of solving discounted MDP have already been introduced. However, their approximations are computationally more demanding than FPD approximations, which does not so far contain necessary apparatus to cover discounting. Therefore, the main focus is to include the discounting factor in the fully probabilistic design.
