IS5152 Decision Making Technologies
Course objective: to introduce students to decision making technologies
that can support decision making in the financial, operational, marketing and
other strategic areas.
Description: Over the past two decades, increasing research efforts have
been directed at finding new machine learning (ML) techniques for decision
making and their possible application in solving practical problems. ML
techniques such as artificial neural network methods have been proven to be
powerful tools for business decision making. Among the application
problems where ML techniques outperform traditional decision making
methods such as statistical methods are credit rating, bankruptcy analysis,
foreign exchange rate predictions and many others.

Topics covered:
The techniques covered in this course include neural networks for
classification/regression/clustering, genetic algorithm for optimization,
decision tree methods, support vector machine, data envelopment
analysis and data mining.
Journal articles that present new techniques for decision making and/or
describe successful application of the existing methods in solving
practical problems will be discussed in class.
IS5152 Decision Making Technologies
This course requires the students to have some background knowledge in:
Simple linear algebra
Basic probability and statistics
No computer programming skill is required.

Class project:
- Identify an interesting problem/topic to test one or more of the
techniques for decision making discussed in class.
- Search/find/collect relevant data.
Use an available software to analyze the data.
- Software will be provided or they can be obtained via the internet.
- Write a (max) 20 page report.
- Present the project in class (duration: 20 minutes).
- More detailed instructions about the project will be given later in the

updates, etc.
2. All lecture materials will be placed in the workbin.
3. Message from Students Against the Violation of the Earth
the Office of Provost had approved the submission of all academic
assignments for undergraduate and graduate studies on doublesided print or through electronic submission
you are encouraged to print your lecture notes on both sides on the
paper. If possible and depending on the layout of the notes, also
encourage them to print 4 to 6 pages on a side
