Project description

This project aims to develop a mathematical framework for rational decision making under uncertainty, and to design reliable classification methods with it. One of its key features is that it does away with the traditional yet unrealistic assumption that there is always an optimal choice.
Instead, we allow for indecision by using choice functions, and use this to our advantage.
