Computation and Learning in Economic Networks
In this talk, I will present algorithms and learning models for game theoretic and economic equilibria --- focusing on how the network structure influences the learning process and the outcomes. This work highlights many natural connections to AI and modern probabilistic modeling. I will also provide results at the intersection of this line of study and topics in social network theory.
This is joint work with Dean Foster, Michael Kearns, John Langford, Luis Ortiz, Robin Pemantle, and Siddharth Suri.
