Title: Bridging The Gap From Individual Behaviour To The Socio-Technical Man (IBSEN)

Sponsor: Horizon 2020, Future & Emerging Technologies (FET)

Description: IBSEN will provide a breakthrough by building a repertoire of human behavior in large (+1000 people) structured groups using controlled experiments. To that end, we will develop a novel setup for large groups of people that will provide an experimental protocol, the necessary software, and analytical tools to allow us to deal with thousands of people at the same time. We will apply our setup to specific research questions, focusing on novel phenomenology that may arise in large systems as compared to typical smaller ones, to find the rules that govern human behavior in those cases, including the influence of social context and individual identity on them. We will assess our approach by building a model of human interaction in groups based on the behavioral rules we have found.
