A Conversation about Decision Support Tools
What are they? When are they useful? What problems might they solve?
An interdisciplinary panel discussion
- Linda Silka, Senior Faculty Fellow, Mitchell Center (facilitator)

A growing problem researchers face is how to take the huge amounts of data available and make it useful to those who are making decisions. The development of decision support tools is a strategy lots of people are exploring. This conversation involves researchers who are working to develop these tools in a variety of different areas. We will learn what decision support tools look like and the processes being used to build them, why researchers decided to take this approach, why these tools can be useful to decision-makers, and what problems they may help to solve?
