We produce forecasts of extreme events in South America and Africa that achieve reliability approaching the current state of the art in Europe and North America, and we achieve reliability at between 4 and 6-day lead times that are similar to current state of the art nowcasts (0-day lead time).

The Large Core of College Admission Markets: Theory and Evidence

no code implementations16 Oct 2020 Péter Biró, Avinatan Hassidim, Assaf Romm, Ran I. Shorrer, Sándor Sóvágó

In Hungary, where such heterogeneity is present, a non-merit-based stable allocation would increase the number of assigned applicants by 1. 9%, and affect 8. 3% of the applicants relative to any merit-based stable allocation.

An Optimal Elimination Algorithm for Learning a Best Arm

no code implementations NeurIPS 2020 Avinatan Hassidim, Ron Kupfer, Yaron Singer

We consider the classic problem of $(\epsilon,\delta)$-PAC learning a best arm where the goal is to identify with confidence $1-\delta$ an arm whose mean is an $\epsilon$-approximation to that of the highest mean arm in a multi-armed bandit setting.

Adversarially Robust Streaming Algorithms via Differential Privacy

no code implementations NeurIPS 2020 Avinatan Hassidim, Haim Kaplan, Yishay Mansour, Yossi Matias, Uri Stemmer

A streaming algorithm is said to be adversarially robust if its accuracy guarantees are maintained even when the data stream is chosen maliciously, by an adaptive adversary.
