Vortrag von Dr. André Martins am 15.12.2021, 15 Uhr, via Zoom
Folgender Gastvortrag am Mi., 15.12.2021, 15 Uhr, ist (auch) Teil der iTIME-Vortragsreihe:
Titel des Vortrags: How does my neighbour think? Mental models and opinion dynamics update rules
Most models in opinion dynamics are created from simple ad-hoc rules. Different models match distinct applications better and very little work exists on how they relate to each other. In this talk, I will show how we can define general models from a framework for how agents communicate and how we can obtain update rules from agent mental models and simple uses of the Bayes theorem. That allows us to easily include specific aspects of any applications we might be interested in as well. And we can also understand, up to some underdeterminacy, which mental models seem to correspond to each of the update rules we find in the literature.
André Martins is currently Associate Professor at the Universidade de São Paulo in Brazil. Having his roots in Physics, his current research areas are sociophysics, statistical mechanics, evolutionary models and simulation of social and biological systems. André will join Bielefeld University in 2022 and will be part of the project "InChangE – Individualisierung in sich ändernden Umwelten".
