The Joker effect: cooperation driven by destructive agents

Understanding the emergence of cooperation is a central issue in evolutionary game theory. The hardest setup for the attainment of cooperation in a population of individuals is the Public Goods game in which cooperative agents generate a common good at their own expenses, while defectors "free-ride" this good. Eventually this causes the exhaustion of the good, a situation which is bad for everybody. Previous results have shown that introducing reputation, allowing for volunteer participation, punishing defectors, rewarding cooperators or structuring agents, can enhance cooperation. Here we present a model which shows how the introduction of rare, malicious agents -that we term jokers- performing just destructive actions on the other agents induce bursts of cooperation. The appearance of jokers promotes a rock-paper-scissors dynamics, where jokers outbeat defectors and cooperators outperform jokers, which are subsequently invaded by defectors. Thus, paradoxically, the existence of destructive agents acting indiscriminately promotes cooperation.

The astute leader sees the Whole System and Sees the Parts and Sees their Interaction: Peter Senge put it this way:  ”Systems thinking is a discipline for seeing wholes. It is a framework for seeing interrelationships rather than things, for seeing patterns of change rather than static ‘snapshots.’ …. And systems thinking is a sensibility — for the subtle interconnectedness that gives living systems their unique character.” This is a good article and very pertinent.

Kel Mohror's comment, September 26, 2013 10:03 PM
Valuable scoop! "Feedback loops are deceptively simple; they are in fact powerful tools that can help people change bad behavior patterns, even those that seem intractable. Just as important, they can be used to encourage good habits, turning progress itself into a reward. In other words, feedback loops change human behavior." [Applied in preventing chronic diseases through the right app and a person's quality of life could dramatically improve.] ----A feedback loop involves distinct stages: 1)evidence stage where a behavior is measured, captured, and stored; 2) relevance stage relays that data as information that is emotionally resonant to the individual; 3) consequence stage requires the information to illuminate one or more paths ahead 4) action stage provides a clear moment when the individual can modify a behavior, make a choice, and act and 5) that action subsequently is measured, and the feedback loop can run once more, every action stimulating new incremental behaviors that inch us closer to our goals.---- This is a clear, concise framework for "how to" spur adoption of chronic disease-preventing behaviors. The "what" details could come from the plan of care established by a provider.---- Huge potential!

Abrupt rise of new machine ecology beyond human response time

Society's techno-social systems are becoming ever faster and more computer-orientated. However, far from simply generating faster versions of existing behaviour, we show that this speed-up can generate a new behavioural regime as humans lose the ability to intervene in real time. Analyzing millisecond-scale data for the world's largest and most powerful techno-social system, the global financial market, we uncover an abrupt transition to a new all-machine phase characterized by large numbers of subsecond extreme events. The proliferation of these subsecond events shows an intriguing correlation with the onset of the system-wide financial collapse in 2008. Our findings are consistent with an emerging ecology of competitive machines featuring ‘crowds’ of predatory algorithms, and highlight the need for a new scientific theory of subsecond financial phenomena.

My boys are always asking questions. At the end of the answer, they ask 'why?' so, I proceed to explain wha and at the end, I am met with another 'why?' It seems that I am not the only parent that undergoes this type of enquiry but it works - our kids learn. This article is about asking questions and evaluating the answer, then asking another question. A good lesson for us adults and leaders if we as leaders want to learn!
