Outline Activities
Electronic commerce has made rapid progress in recent years. Especially, Internet auctions have become especially popular in Electronic Commerce. Computational agents are expected to work on behalf of humans in Internet auctions, e.g., to seek sellers or buyers and to negotiate the prices. Although the Internet provides an excellent infrastructure for executing auctions much cheaper with many more sellers and buyers from all over the world, we must consider the possibility of new types of cheating. Therefore, I have been conducting research on auction theory with aim of designing a reliable auction mechanism that is robust against cheating.
Research Interests
  • Mechanism Design for Electronic Commerce
    keyword : Multi-agent Systems, Game theory, Economics
Current and Past Project
  • This research develops a framework to design mechanisms that satisfy desirable properties such as efficiency and fairness, for social activities in the information environment. We analyze human behaviors in the information environment by integrating the bottom-up approach based on data analysis techniques and the top-down approach based on game theory concepts. Our aim is to apply the framework to construct reliable crowdsourcing services in which people can adequately exchange knowledge and skills.
