Discrete Choice Analysis Summer Course @ MIT

May 20, 2019

Please join Professor Ben-Akiva for his innovative one-week course DISCRETE CHOICE ANALYSIS: PREDICTING INDIVIDUAL BEHAVIOR AND MARKET DEMAND from June 10 - 14, 2019 at MIT.

Discrete choice models are used in many fields such as economics, engineering, environmental management, marketing, urban planning, and transportation. Most applications are performed offline and often involve stated preferences surveys.  This program also covers online applications where predictions of individual choice behavior are used as inputs for online optimization and personalization.

The course is designed for modelers who wish to acquire in-depth knowledge of the latest developments. It is intended for academics and professionals interested in learning new discrete choice techniques. Recent additions to the course is “Foundations of Stated Preference Elicitation: Consumer Behavior and Choice-based Conjoint Analysis” by Moshe Ben-Akiva, Daniel McFadden and Kenneth Train, and estimation algorithms using machine learning methods.

Partial scholarships (50%) are available for junior faculty, postdocs, and doctoral students.
