> Internship at LAMSADE, Paris-Dauphine: development and publication of open source decision-theoretic support tools
>
> LAMSADE is a Paris-Dauphine research laboratory specialized in decision theoretic approaches. Decision theory aims at guiding individuals who face decision problem, by helping those individuals to build a systematic and sound strategy of comparing alternative courses of action.
>
> One of the well-known approaches in decision theory, UTA, requires the user to specify pairwise example comparisons, that is, pairs of alternatives such that one is preferred by the user to the other one. The method then produces, on the basis of linear programming, a formal model of the preferences of the user that reproduces the given examples.
>
> UTA is one of the methods that this internship aims at proposing as an open source software component.
>
> The Decision Deck community (http://www.decision-deck.org/) has produced software frameworks and standards that allow to use and combine open source decision-theoretic tools. The internship will seek, as a second goal, to integrate the developed UTA method as one of those tools.
>
> The third aspect of the internship relates to MyDraft, a general framework for rapid application development (http://­www.­karmicsoft­.com/­index.php/en/resources-menu/demonstration), and DecisionCloud, a software based on MyDraft. These softwares have been developed by KarmicSoft, a LAMSADE spin-off. The internship will seek to document and publish the softwares as open-source tools and use them to provide a graphical user interface to the UTA implementation, or more generally to integrate DecisionCloud with the tools promoted by the Decision Deck community.

> Required and recommended assets: basic knowledge of Object Oriented programming, Java, JavaScript, SQL, Linear Programming; knowledge of ExtJS is a plus. Most importantly, motivation and reliability.
