Imitating the choices of others can appear to be an attractive way to make economic decisions. Yet, there may be circumstances where imitating others doesn’t deliver the best outcomes.
In his talk Professor Weidenholzer will use coordination problems, encountered in a variety of human interactions, and online trading to showcase the implications of imitation learning for individuals and societies at large.
This event is free and open to all. Following the talk there will be a drinks reception in the Lakeside Theatre Café where you have the chance to ask the professor any questions over a glass of wine.
This event is part of the Professorial Inaugural Lectures.
