Machine learning algorithms have attracted considerable attention for prediction and decision-making in various industries. When used for decision-making, it is vital to determine the interpretability of machine learning algorithms.
This PhD project aims to develop and deploy novel machine learning algorithms to produce interpretable solutions for decision-making problems. The project will explore how to incorporate domain knowledge into the machine learning algorithm and evaluate the uncertainty associated with the prediction algorithm for decision-making.
