"Preferences in AI"
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a field that has a long history but still constantly and actively growing and changing. The applications of AI are several, for example web search, speech recognition, face recognition, machine translation, autonomous driving, automatic scheduling etc. These are all complex real-world problems, and the goal of artificial intelligence (AI) is to tackle these with rigorous mathematical tools: machine learning, search, game playing, Markov decision processes, constraint satisfaction, graphical models, and logic.
Recently, a new concept became very important in AI: the use of preferences. Let's think about social networks, online shops, systems that suggest music or films. In this talk it is presented an overview on the main applications of preferences in AI, like recommender systems, multi-agent decision making, computational social choice, stable marriage problems, uncertainty in preferences and qualitative preferences.
