1. Online Review's Impact on Casino Revenue Management


There is emerging trend in the Operations Research Community studying revenue management under “social world setting”. In this project, we explore online review from social media sites’ impact on revenue management. Multi-Arm Bandit problem is a classic model in Optimization, Artificial Intelligence, Probability Theory. Interestingly, it is derived from casino setting. We will use real data from casinos in Macau for empirical study and model validation.

Keywords (3-5 keywords): Online Review, Multi-arm Bandit, Revenue Management, Text Mining
