  • Postdoc Position in Large-Scale Traffic Simulation and Swarm Intelligence for Smart Cities
    by cxdig (Complexity Digest) on May 19, 2022

    Research at the Professorship of Computational Social Science (COSS) is focused on:* bringing modelling and computer simulation of social processes and transportation phenomena together with technology, experimental, and data-driven work,* combining the perspectives of different scientific disciplines (e.g., social science, computer science, complexity science and sociophysics),* bridging fundamental and applied for work,* developing digital tools to support people and studying the resulting […]

  • [Classics] Principles of the self-organizing system
    by cxdig (Complexity Digest) on May 17, 2022

    W. Ross Ashby The brilliant British psychiatrist, neuroscientist, and mathematician Ross Ashby was one of the pioneers in early and mid-phase cybernetics and thereby one of the leading progenitors of modern complexity theory. Not one to take either commonly used terms or popular notions for granted, Ashby probed deeply into the meaning of supposedly self-organizing systems. At the time of the following article, he had been working on a mathematical formalism of his homeostat, a hypothetical […]

  • ‘Machine Scientists’ Distill the Laws of Physics From Raw Data
    by cxdig (Complexity Digest) on May 16, 2022

    Researchers say we’re on the cusp of “GoPro physics,” where a camera can point at an event and an algorithm can identify the underlying physics equation. Read the full article at:

  • The TAP equation: evaluating combinatorial innovation
    by cxdig (Complexity Digest) on May 11, 2022

    Marina Cortês, Stuart A. Kauffman, Andrew R. Liddle, Lee SmolinWe investigate solutions to the TAP equation, a phenomenological implementation of the Theory of the Adjacent Possible. Several implementations of TAP are studied, with potential applications in a range of topics including economics, social sciences, environmental change, evolutionary biological systems, and the nature of physical laws. The generic behaviour is an extended plateau followed by a sharp explosive divergence. We find […]
