Regret minimization has proven to be a very powerful tool in both
computational learning theory and online algorithms. Regret
minimization algorithms can guarantee, for a single decision maker, a
near optimal behavior under fairly adversarial assumptions. I will
discuss a recent extensions of the classical regret minimization
model, which enable to handle many different settings related to job
scheduling, and guarantee the near optimal online behavior.
