AIC Seminar Series

Dependence in Games and Dependence Games

Davide GrossiInstitute for Logic, Language and Computation (University of Amsterdam)[Home Page]

Notice:  Hosted by David Israel.

Date:  2011-06-02 at 16:00

Location:  EJ228 (SRI E building)  (Directions)

   Abstract

I will provide a formal analysis of a notion of dependence between players in a game, bridging game theory with what, in the literature on multi-agent systems, is known as "dependence theory". More precisely, I will show: first, how this notion of dependence allows for an elegant characterization of a property of reciprocity for the outcomes of a game; and second, how this notion of dependence can be used to define refinements of classes of cooperative games, where coalitions are assumed to form only in presence of reciprocal dependences. This is joint work with Paolo Turrini (Utrecht University).

   Bio for Davide Grossi

Davide Grossi holds a master degree in philosophy (University of Pisa, Italy) and a PhD in computer science (Utrecht University, The Netherlands). He has been postdoctoral researcher at the University of Luxembourg and at the Institute for Logic Language and Computation of the University of Amsterdam, where he is currently employed. From September 2011 he will hold a position as assistant professor at the Agent Applications, Research and Technology Group (Agent ART) of the University of Liverpool. He is broadly interested in applications of logic to artificial intelligence (in particular multi-agent systems) and philosophy (in particular theory of law and norms).
