“Cognitive mechanisms for human flocking dynamics” with Rob Goldstone
Think of it as Cognitive Science meets Human Collective Behavior meets Game Theory. This is (only) the second paper to come out of my dissertation (5 years ago). It’s three chapters jammed into one, so if it feels like it’s about level-k being social, and mental models revealing themselves on the fly, and games being open to interpretation, and flocking being robust, and human being capable of faking 10 levels of what-you-think-I-think-you-think-I-think, then, well, it is.
