From Game Theory to Game Engineering
Speaker(s): David Wolpert
Abstract: In this talk I present recent work on combining game theory, statistics, and control theory. This combination provides new techniques for predicting / controlling any system comprising humans, human groups (e.g., firms, tribes), and / or adaptive automated systems (e.g., reinforcement learning robot... read more

Statistical Prediction of the Outcome of a Noncooperative Game
Speaker(s): David Wolpert
Abstract: Many statistics problems involve predicting the joint strategy that will be chosen by the players in a noncooperative game. Conventional game theory predicts that the joint strategy will satisfy an ``equilibrium concept''. The relative probabilities of the joint strategies satisfying the equilibrium... read more

Physical Limits of Inference
Speaker(s): David Wolpert
Abstract: I show that physical devices that perform observation, prediction, or recollection share an underlying mathematical structure. I call devices with that structure ``inference devices''. I present a set of existence and impossibility results concerning inference devices. These results hold independent... read more
