17 October 2016, AUC Logic Lectures, Ulle Endriss

Speaker: Ulle Endriss
Title: Judgment Aggregation
Date: Monday 17 October 2016
Time: 18:00-19:00
Location: AUC Common Room

Abstract: This lecture will be an introduction to the theory of judgment aggregation (JA). JA deals with the problem of combining the views of several individual agents regarding the truth of a number of propositions, expressed in the language of logic, into a single such view that appropriately reflects the stance of the group as a whole. Applications of JA range from aggregating the opinions of several judges in a court of law into a single legal opinion, all the way to aggregating information received from several autonomous software agents in the context of distributed computing systems.
