TREE Opinion on confidence and collective decision-making

TREE Opinion on confidence and collective decision-making

A new Opinion on individual confidence and collective decision-making is in press in Trends in Ecology and Evolution, authored by James together with Andy Radford (Bristol) and Gavin Brown (Manchester).

The Opinion argues for the consideration of subjective confidence and its influence on communication within collectively-deciding groups. The Opinion also draws links between confidence by individually-optimal decision-makers, and the optimal confidence-based weighting scheme for group decisions.
