  1. 1. Variable Selection for Estimating Optimal Sequential Treatment Decisions Using Bayesian Networks

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Statistiska institutionen

    Author : Joel Persson; [2020]
    Keywords : decision theory; causal inference; variable selection; graphical models; causal discovery; dynamic treatment regimes; dynamic programming; reinforcement learning; observational study; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to study the effects of uncertainty in the pixel level estimates concerning the potential benefits of dynamic, pixel-based treatment units compared to traditional stand-based treatment allocation. Because of automatic stand delineation having benefits resulting in the possibility to be more commonly used in forest industry. READ MORE
