The project aims to deal with the construction of agent-based models to describe collective phenomena and shared beliefs through concepts of Statistical Mechanics, Information Theory and Machine Learning. Will be used analytical and computational techniques in order to confront theoretical predictions with large databases on moral opinions and ethnographic data.
