Artificial Intelligence and Economics for Fair, Truthful, and Efficient Resource Allocation
Resource allocation is one of the most fundamental problems that has generated an interestingly rich interplay between artificial intelligence and economics. In this talk, I will illustrate how this interaction spans from developing novel theories to deployed applications in multiagent systems. In particular, I will focus on randomized allocation mechanisms in dynamic environments, argue how traditional mechanisms fail to satisfy desirable social properties, and show how empirical findings can provide deep insights into theoretical guarantees. Lastly, I will briefly explain a novel approach for achieving fairness in resource allocation through information withholding.
