1 March 2019, Computational Social Choice Seminar, Arianna Novaro

Speaker: Arianna Novaro (Toulouse)
Title: Collective Decisions with Logic-based Goals
Date: Friday 1 March 2019
Time: 16:00
Location: ILLC Room F1.15, Science Park 107, Amsterdam


In this talk I will present the framework of goal-based voting, where agents express their individual goals as formulas of propositional logic, with the common objective of reaching a collective decision (e.g., which points of interest to visit together when exploring a new city). I will present some voting rules for this setting, adapted from the literature on Social Choice Theory, which will then be studied from both an axiomatic and a computational perspective. In the final part, I will focus on agents acting strategically, i.e., agents reporting a goal that differs from their truthful one if by doing so they can get a better outcome.
