Computational social choice: ten little talks (a tribute to Agatha Christie)

Jeudi 11 Janvier 2024

Computational social choice is a research field at the intersection of artificial intelligence,  theoretical computer science and economics. It consists of analysing problems arising from the aggregation of preferences of a group of agents from a computational perspective. Some of its subfields are various forms of voting, public decision making (e.g., participatory budgeting), fair division of resources, and matching with preferences (e.g., university-student matching). The interplay of computer science and social choice has not only lead to developing algorithms for collective decision making: it has helped reshaping and revitalising the field, by identifying new paradigms, new problems, new objects of study.  I will briefly present the field and then I will give some examples of such new  paradigms, problems, or objects of study. The ten little talks mentioned in the title refer to potential talks: I will (obviously!) talk about less than ten topics, but these will be selected out of ten candidates by the attendance through a vote (on a voting platform developed at LIG).
Jérôme Lang est directeur de recherche au CNRS depuis 2008 (et au CNRS depuis 1991). Son laboratoire d'affiliation est le LAMSADE (CNRS, PSL, Université Paris-Dauphine).Son domaine de recherche principal est le choix social computationnel (ainsi que, dans le passé, la représentation des connaissances et le raisonnement automatisé). Il a été président du comité de programme de International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI) en 2018. Il est ou a été éditeur associé de Artificial Intelligence Journal (2010-2016), Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (2009-2015), Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (2008-) et Social Choice and Welfare (2016-). Il est co-éditeur du Handbook of Computational Social Choice (Cambridge University Press, 2016).
