Adjunct Lecturer Bradly Alicea will present "Simulations for Information Problems."
Abstract: This talk is meant to introduce students to the world of simulation models and associated computational tools that can be implemented in Python. This lecture will cover the history, implementation, and application domains of such models and why they are essential for any emerging information scientist. Models discussed will include: agent-based models (ABMs), reinforcement learning (RL), generative AI, and VR/AR/XR. These models will be connected to a variety of information problems.
The iSchool Colloquium (IS 400) is a venue for presentation and discussion of research and professional activities by faculty, students, staff, and guest speakers. The colloquium is hosted in person and virtually. All are welcome to attend.
