In 1995, Arnold Vincent Arconati* wrote a Doctoral Thesis for the University of Missouri at Rolla.
The application of Markov state probabilities in developing artificially intelligent managerial strategies: a case study based on major league baseball – by Arnold V. Arconati
From what I can tell it appears to be an interesting scientific paper on the case study of replacing a team’s owner or manager with a computer and how well the artificial intelligence might do. I see there might be lots of applications of this from a better understanding of management and leadership in general to practical applications in sports video games and other areas for artificial intelligence.
