Poison! A Brief Introduction to Game Theory and Adaptive Learning

Thursday, September 6, 20184:00PM - Thursday, September 6, 20185:00PM
At Ruffner 354
Organized by Mathematics and Computer Science

In the game Poison, two players take turns taking one or two objects from a pile. They have to be careful, because the last object is poison-whoever takes it loses the game! During this talk we will play the game Poison. Using techniques from game theory, we will analyze Poison and find a winning strategy. We will finish by creating a human computer to learn how we can use adaptive learning to help us analyze Poison and other games.

Thursday, September 6, 2018 - Ruffner 354, 4 p.m.
