Intelligent Decision Making in One Hour

Decision making is an important skill. Using intelligence to assist can improve the quality. Many overlook the importance and application. This presentation will define and describe the varying levels of decisions, with many examples to help in the understanding.

A computer can be a powerful tool to assist in this endeavor. Theory and applications to the various decision making methods will be discussed, along with the associated programs that are relevant. Recently, there have been many research grants in this realm, as it is a more important than most would deem.

About the Speaker

Dr Morantz, a senior member of the IEEE and member of the Computer and the Computational Intelligence Societies, researches methods to improve our decision making. The goal is to understand how pattern recognition and cognitive function are accomplished in the biological world and then to be able to implement this in the machine environment in order to improve the quality of our decision making.

Dr Morantz has his BS in CIS/EE, his MS and PhD in Mathematical Decision Science with a minor in computer science and an emphasis in artificial intelligence. He has taken additional courses in Computational BioScience, Statistical Design Methodology, Design Analysis of Simulation Experiments (DASE) and the sciences in general. He also has over 150 hours from Raytheon Learning Institute as well as numerous other continuing education courses.

Dr Morantz has given many presentations on advanced methodologies around the country and is currently on the editorial board of the International Journal of Data Mining, Modeling, and Management. He also has many publications in this area as well. He is currently a Tech Fellow at Prime Solutions Group Inc, a defense contractor.
