11 May 2018, Cool Logic, Sebastiaan Beschoor Plug

Speaker: Sebastiaan Beschoor Plug
Title: Cool Logic: Making Friends through Logic
Date: Friday 11 May 2018
Time: 18:00-19:00
Location: ILLC Seminar Room F1.15, Science Park 107, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Need help making friends? Finding it hard to network? Or want to dive a bit into the theoretical bases of Facebook, and subsequently the methods of Cambridge Analytica? Then let this Cool Logic talk help you!

Explore a logical perspective on social group creation and preference change. We will go through a dynamic feature-based social-network change operator and a social-network-based feature change operator. Lastly, we will study these in tandem in the hope of creating a new operator, one that more accurately represents the oftentimes cruel reality of making friends. Afterwards, we will put our new found knowledge to the test, with drinks, snacks, and interesting conversations.
