Norms and Collectives – Between Narratives, Simulations and Games
2015 (English)In: Normative Multi-Agent Systems: Report from Dagstuhl Seminar 15131 / [ed] Amit K. Chopra, Leon van der Torre, Harko Verhagen, Serena Villata, Dagstuhl, Germany: Leibniz-Zentrum fuer Informatik , 2015, 172-173 p.Conference paper (Refereed)Text
In this paper we describe a narrative of a civic resistance movement to defeat the Italian Mafia, a model comparing strategic and normative modes of reasoning in an individual and collective interpretation of an extortion racket situation and a serious game through which to collect data on the four types of behaviours used in the simulation. These three elements will be used to discuss the reflexive and iterative nature of simulation research, in particular in a field as elusive as changing motivations of agents. Finally we will describe how online games can be used to calibrate the model parameters and to accomplish social change.
