Planning Grant „Predicting Biases“

Funding: VW Stiftung
Duration: jan'18 - Jun'18
Budget: EUR 20.000

DSCS

Our intended project will identify key questions related to modeling cognitive biases and how they affect interactions of individuals in social environments. In social environments, conflicts and inconsistencies are ubiquitous in choice making behavior. Experiments consistently dismiss the idea of entirely rational individuals who choose the ‘optimal’ solution according to their preferences. People’s behavior is driven by biases which results in choices that can conflict with these preferences but also recommended activities and social norms. An open question arises whether innovative AI technologies are means for predicting biased choicemaking models that can inform domain experts, such as medical doctors.
