A Review of the Computational Social Choice Literature on Participatory Budgeting
Computational Social Choice Seminars - Nov. 25, 2019

Participatory Budgeting is a growing topic in social choice. Introduced in the late 1980s in Brazil, it is now viewed as a critical topic to improve the democratic process. In this talk I introduced the concept of Participatory Budgeting and gave an overview of the related literature in the field of Computational Social Choice.

Almost Group Envy-free Allocation of Indivisible Goods and Chores
Computational Social Choice Seminars - Nov. 5, 2019

In this talk I presented some recent work I have been doing with Haris Aziz. We consider a multiagent resource allocation setting in which an agent's utility may decrease or increase when an item is allocated. We present stronger and relaxed versions of the group envy-freeness concept that are especially suitable for the allocation of indivisible items. Of particular interest is a concept called group envy-freeness up to one item (GEF1). We studied which fairness concepts guarantee the existence of a fair allocation under which preference domain. For two natural classes of additive utilities, we designed polynomial-time algorithms to compute a GEF1 allocation.

Credulous Acceptability, Poison Game and Modal Logic
SYSMICS 2019 - Jan. 22, 2019

This is a presentation of the work we did with Davide Grossi when I was visiting him in Groningen. It was presented during the Syntax Meets Semantics conference in Amsterdam. A paper was published at AAMAS 2019 on this work.
