Recent Conflict Early Warning Systems have found little evidence of predictive power of drought indicators for conflict prediction. However, this may result from the context-specificity of the drought-conflict relationship, as stressed in the more recent climate-conflict literature.<br/><br/>The present thesis assesses the local role of...

This paper aims to investigate the effect of conflicting demonstrations on Inverse Reinforcement Learning (IRL). IRL is a method to understand the intent of an expert, by only feeding it demonstrations of that expert, which may be a promising approach for areas such as self driving vehicles, where there are a lot of demonstrations from experts....

A shunting yard is used to store trains between arrival and departure. A conflict arises in a shunting yard when one train obstructs another from leaving. Resolving a conflict is done by re-allocating the trains obstructing the departing train to other tracks in the shunting yard. However, these re-allocations complicate the problem at hand and...

This thesis evaluates the effects of including automated event data for interstate conflict prediction. Automated event data are web-scraped news stories converted into data and they may allow conflict models to increase their performance. Accurate models can then be used for early-warning purposes.<br/><br/>To predict three separate problems,...
