An App A Day: Tasty Apps for iPhone and Android - February 24, 2010
Lunch 'n Learn presentation: Smartphones are the new platform, and apps are the core. At the start of the new decade, Apple reported that the App Store for iPhone users has surpassed 100,000 applications, and users have downloaded over 2 billion apps -- not bad for a new market that was created only a year and a half earlier. Meanwhile, Google's Android Market doubled over the last quarter to around 20,000 apps. In this talk Doug Dixon explores the range of apps being developed for these new pl

21 - Repeated games: cooperation vs. the end game
We discuss repeated games, aiming to unpack the intuition that the promise of rewards and the threat of punishment in the future of a relationship can provide incentives for good behavior today. In class, we play prisoners' dilemma twice and three times, but this fails to sustain cooperation. The problem is that, in the last stage, since there is then is future, there is no incentive to cooperate, and hence the incentives unravel from the back. We related this to the real-world problems of a lam

19 - Subgame perfect equilibrium: matchmaking and strategic investments
We analyze three games using our new solution concept, subgame perfect equilibrium (SPE). The first game involves players' trusting that others will not make mistakes. It has three Nash equilibria but only one is consistent with backward induction. We show the other two Nash equilibria are not subgame perfect: each fails to induce Nash in a subgame. The second game involves a matchmaker sending a couple on a date. There are three Nash equilibria in the dating subgame. We construct three correspo

Remix: Making art and commerce thrive in the hybrid economy
For more than a decade, we’ve been waging a war on our kids in the name of the 20th Century’s model of “copyright law.” In this, the last of his books about copyright, Lawrence Lessig maps both a way back to the 19th century, and to the promise of the 21st. Our past teaches us about the value in “remix.” We need to relearn the lesson.

Réduction de la mortalité maternelle - Dakar 2010 : Introduction au colloque. (audio)

Le président de séance rappelle que ce colloque est un moment de réflexion pour confronter les approches et harmoniser le langage. La sexualité humaine est un objet social complexe qui, dans toutes les sociétés du monde, articule le langage, les affects et la physiologie.

La sexualité humaine, à la différence de la sexualité animale, dépasse la fonction de reproduction. Nous sommes des êtres de langage et de société. Le terme même de "reproduction" est trop
