ASU’s Decision Theater – Enabling Collaboration and Decision Making

How will we explore and analyze the complex systems that are being researched today and in the future? How will we collaborate on these problem sets in the future and how will we make the gained insights relevant to decision makers? One crucial part to answer these questions are computational models and associated visualizations that allow the study of those complex systems which are otherwise difficult to comprehend or impossible to experiment with. This presentation will introduce ASU’s Decision Theater and give examples of its work to address the questions above.
