MCTS for business decision making

Funders: InnovateUK

Partners: MooD International

Contact: Dr Daniel Kudenko

Software company MooD International identified software techniques currently used in computer game operation that could potentially enhance the user experience of their business performance management solutions by ‘suggesting the next move’ in achieving business outcomes. Monte Carlo Tree Search (MCTS) is particularly promising but has been largely limited to the immediate domain of ‘game intelligence’, where it is highly successful.

The focus of the project is to apply and, where needed, adapt this technique to business decision making, which is a different and challenging domain. The ultimate goal is to enhance the functionality of MooD International’s business performance management solutions with a decision support engine based on MCTS.
