Algorithmic Game Theory and Artificial Intelligence

  • Edith Elkind Nanyang Technological University

We briefly survey the rise of game theory as a topic of study in artificial intelligence, and explain the term algorithmic game theory. We then de- scribe three broad areas of current inquiry by AI researchers in algorithmic game theory: game playing, social choice, and mechanism design. Finally, we give short summaries of each of the six articles appearing in this issue.
