The traditional econometrics approach for inferring properties of strategic interactions that are not fully observable in the data, heavily relies on the assumption that the observed strategic behavior has settled at an equilibrium. This assumption is not robust in complex economic environments such as online markets where players are typically unaware of all the parameters of the game in which they are participating, but rather only learn their utility after … Continue Reading

Bias is an increasingly observed phenomenon in the world of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning: From gender bias in online search to racial bias in court bail pleas to biases in worldviews depicted in personalized newsfeeds. How are societal biases creeping into the seemingly “objective’’ world of computers and programs? At the core, what is powering today’s AI are algorithms for fundamental computational problems such as classification, data summarization, … Continue Reading

Game Theory Through the Computational Lense @ Old Theatre, Old Building | England | United Kingdom
The fields of computer science and game theory both trace their roots to the first half of the 20th century, with the work of Turing, von Neumann, Nash, and others.  Fast forwarding to the present, there are now many fruitful points of contact between these two fields.  Game theory plays an important role in 21st-century computer science applications, ranging from social networks to routing in the Internet.  The flow of … Continue Reading
