  • Understanding the impact of physicality on network structure
    by cxdig (Complexity Digest) on December 4, 2022

    Márton Pósfai, Balázs Szegedy, Iva Bačić, Luka Blagojević, Miklós Abért, János Kertész, László Lovász, Albert-László BarabásiThe emergence of detailed maps of physical networks, like the brain connectome, vascular networks, or composite networks in metamaterials, whose nodes and links are physical entities, have demonstrated the limits of the current network science toolset. Indeed, link physicality imposes a non-crossing condition that affects both the evolution and the […]

  • Extending the Predictive Mind
    by cxdig (Complexity Digest) on December 2, 2022

    Andy Clark Australasian Journal of Philosophy How do intelligent agents spawn and exploit integrated processing regimes spanning brain, body, and world? The answer may lie in the ability of the biological brain to select actions and policies in the light of counterfactual predictions—predictions about what kinds of futures will result if such-and-such actions are launched. Appeals to the minimization of ‘counterfactual prediction errors’ (the ones that would result under various […]

  • Phase Transitions and Criticality in the Collective Behavior of Animals — Self-organization and biological function
    by cxdig (Complexity Digest) on December 2, 2022

    Pawel Romanczuk, Bryan C. DanielsCollective behaviors exhibited by animal groups, such as fish schools, bird flocks, or insect swarms are fascinating examples of self-organization in biology. Concepts and methods from statistical physics have been used to argue theoretically about the potential consequences of collective effects in such living systems. In particular, it has been proposed that such collective systems should operate close to a phase transition, specifically a (pseudo-)critical […]
