讲座摘要:

Dynamic mechanisms are powerful approaches for optimizing the revenue and efficiency of repeated auctions. Implementing these approaches is made complicated, however, by a number of conditions that are difficult to satisfy in practice. These include that the auction designer must be clairvoyant, in the sense that they must have reliable forecasts of participants’ valuation distributions in all future periods. Recently, Mirrokni et al. (2020) introduced a non-clairvoyant dynamic mechanism and showed it is optimal within the class of dynamic mechanisms that do not rely on strong assumptions regarding knowledge about the future. Here we report data from an experiment designed to test the performance of their mechanism. Our results support the theory: the optimal non-clairvoyant dynamic mechanism outperforms the repeated optimal static mechanism when it is predicted to do so. Our results point to the practical importance of non-clairvoyant mechanisms as implementable approaches to dynamic auction design.
