Measuring the cost of imperfect information for the military airlift problem

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


In the military airlift problem, we experience imperfect information. To measure the cost of imperfect information, we employ an intelligent simulator called the "optimising simulator" that can explicitly model evolving information processes, capture the information content of a decision, as well as provide a spectrum of "information models" ranging from the simplest rule-based decision function to the most sophisticated adaptive learning strategies. In this paper, we measure the cost differences between the results of perfect and imperfect information under different information models.
