Dr hab. inż. Miłosz Kadziński - assosiate professor at the Institute of Computer Science of the Poznań University of Technology. In his research he deals with computer-aided decisions, an important stream of operations research. The original decision support methodology developed by him is based on the processing of incomplete and imprecise data about preferences into conclusions useful in solving multi-criteria decision problems. This methodology creatively combines artificial intelligence and decision theory with mathematical programming and computer simulations. The preference modeling algorithms proposed by him allow for the inclusion of various forms of holistic decision examples in the decision-making process, and the developed methods of resistance analysis allow for the development of recommendations with various levels of certainty. He is also the author of algorithms combining various scientific specialties, which enrich the traditionally understood decision support with aspects typical of machine learning, evolutionary multi-criteria optimization, efficiency analysis and border data analysis as well as group decisions and negotiations.
He published the results of his research in over 70 articles in leading journals from the Journal Citation Reports list in the category of operations research or computer science with artificial intelligence (including Omega, European Journal of Operational Research, Computers & Operations Research, Decision Support Systems, Information Sciences, Machine Learning). He cooperates with over a dozen leading European research centers in the development of decision support methods (including University of Catania, Erasmus University Rotterdam, University of Lisbon, Universitat Pompeu Fabra) and their applications in real decision-making problems (e.g. ETH Zurich, London School of Economics, University of Southern Denmark, TU Delft, University of Perugia). The main areas of these applications are transport, logistics, medicine, nanotechnology, environmental protection, spatial planning, construction, education and risk analysis.
Manager of research projects financed by the National Science Center (Sonata program) and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education (Iuventus Plus program). Vice-president of the international Decision Deck consortium, which brings together leading scientists in the development of open software for decision support. Member of the committee coordinating the activities of the European Working Group at EURO on multi-criteria decision support. One of the main organizers of EURO 2016 - the largest European conference on operational research.
The innovation and comprehensiveness of his achievements have resulted in the award of prestigious awards by international scientific associations on multi-criteria decision support (Multiple Criteria Decision Making Doctoral Dissertation Award) and operational research (EURO Doctoral Dissertation Award - top 3 and MCDM Junior Researcher Best Paper Award 2018 and 2019). Honored as the best reviewer by the European Journal of Operational Research in 2012-19, Group Decision and Negotiation in 2017. and Omega in 2017. Laureate of awards from the Foundation for Polish Science (START scholarship in 2013-14), Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland (scientific award in 2018), Ministry of Science and Higher Education (scientific awards in 2013 and 2018 and a scholarship for outstanding young scientists in 2013-16) and the Polish Academy of Sciences (the award of the O / PAN in Poznań for the best research in the field of technical sciences in 2013 and the award of the 4th Department of Technical Sciences in 2016)
