(First Past the Post-)Graduate Seminar Talk

Vitalijs Brejevs

Friday 7th February, 2020 14:00-15:00 Maths 311B


In this talk I will give some interactive examples of how almost every voting system (majority vote, FPTP, ranked voting, instant-runoff voting, Borda count, Condorcet method, etc., etc.) is bad. Along the way we will learn what Bayesian regret is, how the Pirate Party votes and how Gary Johnson could have won the 2016 US presidential election.
