" Game Theory for Data Science "
Much of the recent success of AI is due to the use of large amounts of data as a basis for knowledge acquisition and decision making. The quality of the resulting systems depends heavily on the accuracy of this data. However, contrary to almost all other items that are traded in the economy, there is no way to measure the quality of data in isolation.
However, assessment of quality become possible when data is evaluated in the context of other data. I will show a range of game-theoretic techniques for assessing the data quality and rewarding data according to its quality.
