Decision Making under Uncertainty: Methodologies from Signal Processing & Forecasting

Journal Club Overview

This jointly sponsored journal club will bring students from the engineering and business communities together to review seminal literature around decision theory in the context of signal and information processing.

Each session will include three presentations by meeting participants, each lasting 15 minutes with 5 additional minutes of discussion time. The focus of this journal club will be to broaden knowledge base and research scope for PhD students.

The journal articles can be selected from the Centre’s recommended list of articles on decision theory. A list will be emailed to all participants.

Friday Session | 13:00-14:00

Journal Club Topic
Decomposition of large datasets using Bayesian extensions

Applications to Computer Vision and Human Computer Interaction and Brain Computer Interfacing research will be discussed.
