Abstract
We evaluate the asymptotic performance of boundedly-rational strate-
gies in multi-armed bandit problems, where performance is measured in
terms of the tendency (in the limit) to play optimal actions in either (i)
isolation or (ii) networks of other learners. We show that, for many strate-
gies commonly employed in economics, psychology, and machine learning,
performance in isolation and performance in networks are essentially un-
