A computer simulation of the argument from disagreement

Johan E. Gustafsson, Martin Peterson
2010 Synthese  
The simulation algorithm we use builds on the work of Hegselmann and Krause (In this paper we shed new light on the Argument from Disagreement by putting it to test in a computer simulation.  ...  According to this argument widespread and persistent disagreement on ethical issues indicates that our moral opinions are not influenced by any moral facts, either because no such facts exist or because  ...  Acknowledgements Early versions of this paper were presented to audiences at conferences and seminars at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Stockholm University, Uppsala University, Lund University  ...

How to Build Consensus in a Health-Oriented Online Community: Modeling a "Pro-Ana" Forum

We then complexify the macrosetting, considering the effects of turnover (the possibility of exiting and/or entering the forum), and different rates of active participation of members to discussions.  ...  These results lead to policy recommendations to design successful health information campaigns, and advocate against access restrictions or filtering of these online communities.  ...  I somewhat fear of falling into the vicious circle, the circle "I posted a comment," then they will reply, and I have to re-reply … (Excerpt interviewee ID 83 FR).  ...

Strategic Interaction in Humans and Other Animals

Simon M. Huttegger, Brian Skyrms
2013 Biological Theory  
The repli- cator equation can indeed be interpreted as some kind of social learning. This is a mathematical and not an empirical finding, however.  ...  Some of the topics that will be explored concern applications of game theory; others will be about its conceptual foundations when viewed in terms of evolutionary or learning processes.  ...

Thomas C. Schelling and James M. Sakoda: The Intellectual, Technical, and Social History of a Model

Rainer Hegselmann
2017 Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation  
To date it is called the Schelling model -an eponym that affixes the inventor's name to the invention, one of the highest forms of scientific recognition.  ...  Technical and social factors play a decisive role. Some contrafactual historical reflection suggests that the final result was not inevitable.  ...  Reprint of Hegselmann 1996b, [Hegselmann, 1998] and [Hegselmann and Flache, 1998 ].

Interaction Network, State Space and Control in Social Dynamics [article]

Aylin Aydogdu, Marco Caponigro, Sean McQuade, Benedetto Piccoli, Nastassia Pouradier Duteil, Francesco Rossi, Emmanuel Trélat
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Meanwhile, convergence to specific equilibria depends on the connectivity of the interaction network and on the interaction potential.  ...  When the system does not satisfy the necessary conditions for convergence to the desired equilibrium, control can be exerted, both on finite-dimensional systems and on their mean-field limit.  ...  Hegselmann and Krause have for instance looked at (one-dimensional) asymmetric confidence: [45] .  ...

A.E. Biondo, G. Brosio, A. Pluchino, R. Zanola
2020 arXiv   pre-print
To this aim we develop and test a modified version of the Hegselmann and Krause (2002) model to capture these two characteristics of the decisional process in different institutional contexts.  ...  The aim of the paper is to investigate the trade-off between pluralism of preferences and the time required to approach a decision.  ...  To this aim, we develop and test a modified version of the Hegselmann and Krause (2002) , the hk-Politics, hk-p henceforth.  ...

On Simulating the Propagation and Countermeasures of Hate Speech in Social Networks

Maite Lopez-Sanchez, Arthur Müller
2021 Applied Sciences  
We reuse insights from the research literature to construct and validate a baseline model for the propagation of hate speech.  ...  From this, three countermeasures are modelled and simulated to investigate their effectiveness in containing the spread of hatred: Education, deferring hateful content, and cyber activism.  ...  Conversely, a hateful user will prefer to attach to haters.  ...

The dynamics of continuous cultural traits in social networks

Berno Buechel, Tim Hellmann, Michael M. Pichler
2014 Journal of Economic Theory  
The model is akin to the classical DeGroot model of opinion formation which we generalize by allowing for strategic interaction.  ...  We provide conditions on the network structure that are sufficient for long-run convergence to a society with homogeneous subgroups.  ...  Other studies on convergence of opinion dynamics include that of Krause (2000) , Hegselmann and Krause (2002) , Weisbuch et al. (2002) , and Golub and Jackson (2010) . 8 Both our evolving cultural  ...
