How to Decommission California’s Offshore Oil Platforms?

Presenters Max Henrion, Lumina Decision Systems; Brock Bernstein, Ecoanalysis; Surya Swamy, Lumina Decision Systems

The 27 oil platforms off California’s coast are reaching the end of their productive lives. Should they be removed at great cost to the oil companies? Or should they be converted to artificial reefs to preserve their rich marine ecosystems? An interdisciplinary team created a decision analysis tool with Analytica to help the initially conflicted decision makers find a solution satisfying almost everyone.

How to Recalibrate and Combine Overconfident Experts

Presenter Max Henrion, Lumina Decision Systems

Overconfidence in expert elicitations may be evident from low overlap between probability distributions from different experts. We use this evidence to estimate the degree of overconfidence by expert, and recalibrate them to obtain better calibrated aggregate distributions. We demonstrate the practical value of the method on expert elicitations of the future cost and performance of low-carbon energy technologies.
