I just had a great time visiting Prof. Dr. Dean Eckles at MIT; I attended ACM-EC (a great conference), and Dean and I discussed a lot of ongoing work (causality, habits, indirect inference, and much more). Looking forward to more collaborations. Here is a picture of Boston taken from the MIT Sloan building:
Note that we have also been doing a lot of software development:
- We presented UltimateSim (simulations of the Ultimatum game) during ACM-EC; see: https://github.com/Nth-iteration-labs/ultimatesim
- We are currently working on a total overhaul of StreamingBandit, making it easier to use, more scalable, etc. For progress see: https://github.com/Nth-iteration-labs/streamingbandit
- Finally, we are wrapping up a package for the online (row-by-row) estimation of hierarchical models. Hope to finalize the package soon, but see progress here: https://github.com/L-Ippel/SEMA_extended
That’s it for now; we wish all of you a great summer!
