Dear Harnidh, Yosem- In the close of last chapter of Algorithms to Live By <http://algorithmstoliveby.com/> about the challenges and potentials of Game Theoretic Mechanism Design by way of the Revolution Principal <http://faculty.haas.berkeley.edu/rjmorgan/phdba279b/Class%201%20Introduction.pdf> , Brian Christian <http://brianchristian.org/> and Tom Griffiths <http://cocosci.berkeley.edu/tom/index.php> mention the concept of Computational Kindness <https://egtheory.wordpress.com/2016/06/30/computational-kindness/>. The point I make here it that it is possible to construct an N-Way, spoiler effect free vote tallying systems that is always "computationally kind" to all voters of the electorate. That is, a voting system where every voter's best strategy is always to express the truth about there preference rankings as placed upon a cardinal personal utility scale.. furthermore such an automated strategic voting system can be made to operate entirely within a information leveled context, where any issues of strategic information asymmetry would be entirely mitigated.
While for some combinations of ballot input (when there is not a clear cut pairwise head to head Condorcet win against all other contenders), as a good understanding of Gibbard–Satterthwaite theorem <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibbard%E2%80%93Satterthwaite_theorem>, suggests, some amount of departure from a fully deterministic outcome is required to defeat any potential of strategic vote gaming, the introduction of this fully hidden randomization variable can be configured in such a fashion as to minimize the field of ultimate contention as well as the degree of randomization ultimately required.. That is: if we define the election outcome to be at the sole equilibrium of automated strategic probabilistic (fuzzy) approval voting game, that minimizes this width of a linear "viability margin" we can solve for the this unique probability that minimizes the amount of randomization required to defeat any possibility of strategic vote gaming... and thus provide the social choice solution that is as close as is theoretically possible to a deterministic outcome. Furthermore if one then combines the above concept with a voter specified strategic moderation parameter as suggest in this paper <http://www.votingmatters.org.uk/ISSUE27/I27P1.pdf>, a very attractive voting system can be constructed. Hope this helps.. all the best -Peter On Sun, Feb 4, 2018 at 6:09 AM, Yosem Companys <ycompa...@gmail.com> wrote: > From: Harnidh Kaur <kharn...@gmail.com> > > I don’t think most of you know this, but I work in the development space > and we’re always trying to find cool ways to make tech make the world > better.
