Siddharth is a Ph.D. student in Cognitive Decision Science. He is interested in how groups of agents ought to collectively process information. The answer to this question varies drastically with agents’ goals, the learning context, and what communication protocols are feasible. For instance agents may incur costs when processing new public knowledge. They may lack awareness of how others interpret propositions or be unable to directly share evidence. The opportunities and obstacles towards efficient aggregation change from setting to setting warranting the use of different protocols.
