Wednesday 30 Nov 2022Robin Chapman Lecture: Clueless Voting

Prof. Imre Leader - University of Cambridge

Harrison 004 14:30-16:30


Abstract: Our starting point is the following obviously absurd question. Suppose that a large group are set to vote on a yes/no issue: each person will vote (in the usual way: in secret, at the same time) and then the `outcome' is taken to be the majority decision. Each voter wants their vote to be right, but no voter has any idea at all about the issue. How should they vote?
