Project: Decision Theory Based on Contextual Quantum Probability



Prayag Tiwari received his Master's Degree from the National University of Science and Technology MISIS, Moscow. He was working as a Teaching Assistant in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering during his Master's Degree Tenure. He has several publications in Journals, Book Series, and Conferences.

Currently, he is the first-year Ph.D. student at the University of Padova and working as an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) in the QUARTZ project. His research interest includes Information Retrieval, Machine Learning, IoT. His current research work focuses on how and what the users of an Information Access and Retrieval (IAR) system judge the relevancy of documents, on what are the different circumstances that affect relevancy of documents. Moreover, the project aims to demonstrate whether the probabilities of human making decision can be quantified by quantum probabilities. It will assist us to develop a model of IAR which will escort to implement a novel decision theory on the basis of quantum probability.
