The Speed of Social Learning

Speaker: Omer Tamuz, Caltech
Location: Annenberg 213

Abstract:

We consider Bayesian agents who learn from private signals, as well as the actions of the other. We show that learning from actions is slower than learning from signals, and that that increased interaction between the agents can lower the speed of learning.
 
Joint with Matan Harel, Elchanan Mossel and Philipp Strack
