Computer Science Distinguished Lecture Series
Start Date: 2/2/2015Start Time: 2:30 PM
End Date: 2/2/2015

Event Description:

Speaker: Eva Tardos, Jacob Gould Schurman Professor of Computer Science at Cornell University

Topic: Composable Mechanisms, Learning, and Price of Anarchy in Auctions

Eva Tardos' research focuses on algorithms and games on networks. She is most known for her work on network-flow algorithms, approximation algorithms, and quantifying efficiency of selfish routing. She will discuss how selfish behavior leads to suboptimal outcome for auction participants. Over the last decade we have developed an understanding of how to quantify the impact of strategic user behavior on concrete game performance. Players are typically in multiple auctions, have complex valuations with multiple outcomes, and use learning strategies to deal with an uncertain environment. Tardos will detail how to provide robust guarantees for the performance of simple auctions in complex environments.
