Mechanisms and dynamics of social order in agent societies

Edited by Rosaria Conte, Giulia Andrighetto, and Marco Campennì

Oxford Series on Cognitive Models and Architectures

  • This book presents a new general theory of norms, applicable across domains and empirically tested.
  • The authors have devised a new set of conceptual, theoretical and computational instruments, exceeding the scope of the present theory, and extending to the study of fairly complex social systems.
  • The book introduces a new simulation platform, EMIL-S, where EMIL-As and/or EMIL-IAs generate new norms.
  • The book also presents new empirical findings about norm emergence testing the theory proposed.
