Modelling Human Decision Making; Some Puzzles
MCMP at First Sight (Video Abstract)
Ulrike Hahn (Birkbeck) presents a video abstract of "Modelling Human Decision Making; Some Puzzles" on "MCMP at First Sight". About the talk at the 6th Munich-Sydney-Tilburg Conference "Models and Decisions" (10-12 April, 2013): A vast literature on human decision-making has highlighted its frailties and deviations from expected utility, leading to a plethora of alternative, descriptive models. However, more recent work has found maximization of expected value to provide a good descriptive account of decision-making in perceptual or perceptual motor domains. Trying to reconcile these two sets of results raises a number of interesting formal considerations.
