Stats4Grads: Decision Making and Planning Under Uncertainty

Presented by Anthony Lawson, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Durham University

18 November 2015 13:00 in CM105

At the time investment decisions are made there may be uncertainty in many aspects which affect a decision and its outcome.
Further, work with expensive simulators can make it difficult to asses how uncertainty in input affects output.
An example will be presented which will consider transmission expansion planning (building new power lines) under uncertainty
and how statistical emulators are a useful tool for approximating simulators and adequately considering uncertainties
when making a decision.
