social interactions

“Modeling Identity Dynamics and Uncertainty in Social Interactions”

Assistant Professor Kimberly Rogers was awarded a CompX grant from the Neukom Institute for her project “Modeling Identity Dynamics and Uncertainty in Social Interactions: Bayesian Affect Control Theory.” CompX grants support the development of novel computational techniques and the application of computational methods to research across the campus and professional schools.             

The award will support the development of simulation and visualization software powered by BayesACT, a theoretically-grounded computational model of social interaction dynamics. The software will enable a host of empirical validation studies, by allowing users to generate precise, testable mathematical predictions about interaction.
