Thesis

On confidence in individual and group decision-making

Abstract:

This thesis is about the human ability to share and combine representations of the uncertainty associated with individual beliefs – an ability which is called metacognition and facilitates effective cooperation. We distinguish between two metacognitive representations: an implicit confidence variable for oneself and an explicit confidence report for sharing with others. Using visual psychophysics and computational modelling, we address the issues of optimality
