Content Provider Dynamics and Coordination in Recommendation Ecosystems

Meta Review

The reviewers agree and myself agree that this is an interesting game theoretic model to study that could appeal to the neurips community and which has been well-studied already. They also agree that the paper provides a solid theoretical contribution. However, there is a strong worry about the motivation behind the choice of best-response dynamics and the restriction to pure equilibria that although tackled in the rebuttal, still not satisfactorily. Given the strong and non-trivial theoretical results and the relevance of the model, I am would recommend acceptance as a poster, but the authors are strongly encouraged to augment their arguments in the paper regarding the justification of their restrictions above, and how they relate to practical relevance.
