Speech Title: "On the Advancement of Multi-Agent Games: From Theoretical and Experimental Perspectives"

Abstract: One of the most elusive scientific challenges for over 150 years has been to explain why cooperation survives despite being a seemingly inferior strategy from an evolutionary point of view. Over the years, various theoretical scenarios aimed at solving the evolutionary puzzle of cooperation have been proposed, eventually identifying several cooperation-promoting mechanisms. Here, we will systematically survey the recent theoretical research combining game theory and reinforcement learning. In addition, we will also explore how human behaviors evolve in multi-agent games (including human-robot games).
