Game Dynamics on the Internet

Abstract:Much research in Game Theory studies dynamic environments in which decision-makers repeatedly interact, exploring the global implications of such interactions, e.g., when does "natural" behavior (a la each strategic agent repeatedly best-responding to others) yield desirable global configurations (e.g., an equilibrium state). We will discuss how game-theoretic insights in this area can be leveraged to tackle fundamental challenges facing today's Internet, including routing instability and poor performance, and interesting directions for future research.

Yes It Can 2.0: Old and New Frontiers in the Study of the Human Unconscious

In this talk I will succinctly present the argument and data that led to the view I developed in Yes It Can 1.0: Every fundamental, basic level function that we can consciously perform we can also perform non-consciously.

How Theories Travel: Network Topologies and the Role of the Translator in the Early Diffusion of Rational Choice Theories

Abstract:How do scientific innovations spread within and across scientific communities? In this paper, we address this question by applying network analysis to study the early spread of John von Neumann and Oskar Morgenstern’s Theory of Games and Economic Behavior within and across the social and behavioral sciences as an exemplary case of the diffusion of scientific concepts and formal-mathematical tools. Using co-citation analysis, we reconstruct the knowledge domain in which the concepts and tools contained in the Theory of Games have found further modification and application.
