Course Description This is a course on how techniques from AI and optimization enable large-scale game solving and market design. We will cover the core ideas behind recent superhuman AIs for games such as Poker and Go. Then, we will discuss how AI and game theory ideas are used in large-scale marketplaces such as internet advertising, recommender systems, and electricity markets. This is intended to be an advanced MS level and senior undergraduate course for students in Operations Research and Financial Engineering. Students should therefore have a strong background in optimization, linear algebra, and statistics.
