William Fauriat, Independent researcher on the issue of Exploration (statistics) : Knowledge, Risk and Decision


My current research activity relates to the joint use of probability and decision theory as a framework to guide decision under uncertainty notably by addressing proper risk control (robust decision making), learning mechanisms and data and information collection (value of information), conditional decision making, as well as the question of modeling choices (model uncertainty).

Keywords: probability theory, stochastic modeling, decision theory, statistics, Bayesian methods, learning, information processing, value of information, numerical methods, risk analysis, reliability analysis, maintenance optimization
