Laputa is a program for simulating the epistemological aspects of a society. It allows the user to design different society structures, and run various tests on these. It currently implements a Bayesian belief update strategy.
Laputa is the creation of Sofie Angere (formerly known as Staffan Angere) and Erik J. Olsson. Angere has a PhD in Theoretical Philosophy from Lund University and is currently Senior Engine Programmer at Paradox Interactive.
Erik J. Olsson is Professor and Chair in Theoretical Philosophy at Lund University, Sweden, and co-creator of Laputa. His areas of research include epistemology, philosophical logic, pragmatism, and, more recently, philosophy of the Internet.
