A networked set of agents holding binary opinions does not seem to be able to compute its majority opinion by means of local binary interactions only. However, the majority problem can be solved using two or more bits, instead of one (F. Bénézit , “Interval consensus: From quantized gossip to voting”, Apr. 2009, pp. 3661-3664). Pairs of agents asynchronously exchange their states and update them according to a voting automaton. This paper presents binary voting automata as well as solutions… CONTINUE READING
