(Updated) 26 November 2020, Computational Social Choice Seminar, Simon Rey

Speaker: Simon Rey (ILLC)
Title: A Selective Literature Review of the Truth Tracking Approach in Computational Social Choice
Date: Thursday 26 November 2020
Time: 15:00

Abstract

In this talk I will give a general overview of the epistemic approach in computational social choice. In this body of literature, voting is seen as a mechanism to recover the objectively best outcome for the society, given noisy votes. I will discuss the general framework as well as some selected recent contributions, reviewing the main concepts used in the literature.

This talk will be held online. Everybody is welcome. Please note that we will be using the waiting room functionality, so you may have to wait a couple of minutes before getting admitted.
