Artificial Intelligence and Decision Support

At LIAAD, we work on the very strategic area of Data Science, which has an increasing interest worldwide and is critical to all areas of human activity. The huge amounts of collected data (Big Data) and the ubiquity of devices with sensors and/or processing power offer opportunities and challenges to scientists and engineers. Moreover, the demand for complex models for objective decision support is spreading in business, health, science, e-government and e-learning, which encourages us to invest in different approaches to modelling.

Our overall strategy is to take advantage of the data flood and diversification, and to invest in research lines that will help reduce the gap between collected and useful data, while offering diverse modelling solutions.

At LIAAD, our fundamental scientific principals are machine learning, statistics, optimisation and mathematics.

Discriminant analysis of distributional data via fractional programming

Authors
Dias, S; Brito, P; Amaral, P;

Publication
European Journal of Operational Research

Abstract
We address classification of distributional data, where units are described by histogram or interval-valued variables. The proposed approach uses a linear discriminant function where distributions or intervals are represented by quantile functions, under specific assumptions. This discriminant function allows defining a score for each unit, in the form of a quantile function, which is used to classify the units in two a priori groups, using the Mallows distance. There is a diversity of application areas for the proposed linear discriminant method. In this work we classify the airline companies operating in NY airports based on air time and arrival/departure delays, using a full year flights. © 2021 Elsevier B.V.
