I am Nicolás Della Penna, and go by Nikete to my friends. Im currently doing a PhD in the Statistical Machine Learning group at the Australian National University, focused on the relationship between statistical learning and collective cognition: how social institutions can embody learning algorithms, and what new institutions could have better properties. Currently I work on theoretical models of collective cognition under uncertainty as well as practical applications, particularly in contigent claims markets, scientific reproducibility and medical effectiveness.
