4 Preliminary results

4.1 Grounding mechanisms are use to built shared sub-spaces

The collaborators do not to build a single shared space of knowledge, but multiple shared sub-spaces. There is of course a central space: the two detectives have to acquire a shared a belief about the identity of the murderer and therefore have to agree on the degree of suspicion with respect to each character. However, these beliefs rely on a complex network of information items which have to be (partially) shared in order to agree on any conclusion. The mechanisms for grounding these pieces of information are different, simply because the nature of information itself is different. We review them from an economical perspective, comparing the necessity of grounding with the cost of grounding. The necessity of grounding depends on the probability that the information is not grounded and the damage caused by the non -grounding.
