Project: The Value of Data

Data is a driver of value creation. For instance, the value of many tech companies is based on data-guided marketing algorithms. Businesses optimize the gains of their processes using data, e.g. in fraud detection. For a good understanding of the value of data, three theoretical domains are relevant: probability theory, expected utility theory and logic. Probability theory provides the foundations for descriptive statistics, expected utility theory models subjective values, and logic represents complex qualitative relations. In the project, argumentation-based formal methods and algorithms will be developed connecting probability theory, expected utility theory and logic. The project will extend techniques developed for evidential reasoning about the facts to practical reasoning about actions.
