In the era of rapid technological innovation and high social and economic uncertainty, government and companies are required to make decisions more quickly than ever. Although various large big-data such as transaction logs and location information, various studies showed that they are not useful for managerial or policy decision making as it is, because the big-data suffer from various biases such as selection bias. This team will develop new data-fusion techniques for various types of datasets including governmental survey data, big-data and macro-level information, to improve accuracy of public statistical information, or to aid investment/managerial decision making. We also investigate new data acquisition methods in business and economic fields which utilize statistical machine learning methods.
