Rules of Thumb in Life-cycle Saving Decisions*

Joachim K. Winter, Kathrin Schlafmann, Ralf Rodepeter
2012 Economic Journal  
We analyse life-cycle saving decisions when households use simple heuristics, or rules of thumb, rather than solve the underlying intertemporal optimization problem.  ...  that do not require computationally demanding tasks such as backward induction. , the special issue editor (Rachel Griffith) and referees, and participants at numerous seminars and conferences for helpful  ...  It is a well-known finding from psychological research on decision-making that individuals use heuristics, or rules of thumb, in making judgements and decisions.  ...

Idealizations of Uncertainty, and Lessons from Artificial Intelligence

Robert Elliott Smith
2016 Economics : the Open-Access, Open-Assessment e-Journal  
Under the radically uncertain conditions, human decision-making (for all its problems) has proved relatively robust, while decision making relying solely on deterministic rules or probabilistic models  ...  This paper will argue that while prescriptive AI systems have been created that are effective for many engineered domains as aids for human decision makers, successes of these uses of AI should not obscure  ...  In fact, Gigerenzer and Brighton show such heuristics at play as real human decision-making processes.  ...

Inducing decision trees with an ant colony optimization algorithm

Fernando E.B. Otero, Alex A. Freitas, Colin G. Johnson
2012 Applied Soft Computing  
In this paper we propose a novel ACO algorithm to induce decision trees, combining commonly used strategies from both traditional decision tree induction algorithms and ACO.  ...  While ant colony optimization (ACO) algorithms have been successfully applied to extract classification rules, decision tree induction with ACO algorithms remains an almost unexplored research area.  ...  Acknowledgement We thank Jan Kozak for providing a binary version of the cACDT algorithm and for his help in the preparation of the cACDT's data sets.  ...

Learning Hierarchical Skills from Observation [chapter]

Ryutaro Ichise, Daniel Shapiro, Pat Langley
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The resulting program is concise and easy to understand, making it possible to view program induction as a practical technique for knowledge acquisition.  ...  We infer these programs using a three-stage process that learns flat unordered rules, combines these rules into a classification hierarchy, and finally translates this structure into a hierarchical reactive  ...  Thus, our heuristics for rule combination regularized the representation.  ...

Jilles Steeve Dibangoye, Christopher Amato, Olivier Buffet, François Charpillet
2016 The Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research  
Decentralized partially observable Markov decision processes (Dec-POMDPs) provide a general model for decision-making under uncertainty in decentralized settings, but are difficult to solve optimally (  ...  To provide scalability, we refine this approach by combining heuristic search and compact representations that exploit the structure present in multi-agent domains, without losing the ability to converge  ...  Experimentally, we show that FB-HSVI is able to outperform all current state-of-the-art exact Dec-POMDP solvers in common benchmark domains.  ...
