Romuald Elie (Deepmind) - A mean field games view on epidemic dynamics control

This talk is dedicated to the control of epidemic dynamics, by the population or a global planer. We will first investigate how epidemic dynamics can be controled by the population itself, trough the aggregation of individual decisions of social distancing reduction in response to the virus prevalence. This leads to a mean field game formulation of the problem where, in particular, the Nash equilibrium  provides a global control of dynamics largely differing from the social optimum one. We Read more [...]
