Title:A Bayesian Theory of Conformity in Collective Decision Making

The reviewers and I all think the topic of this paper, conformity in decision making, is of great importance and that the paper is well written. The primary reservation of the reviewers is that the paper overstates the novelty of the modeling contribution -- that the proposed model is almost the same as in ref 23. I think the paper would still make a useful addition to neurips but the authors must moderate and clarify their claims on this point, preferably clearly stating the relationship in the introduction.
