Information Processing in Complex Systems - satellite workshop of CCS 2017

All systems in nature can be considered from the perspective that they process information. Information is registered in the state of a system and its elements, implicitly and invisibly. As elements interact, information is transferred. Indeed, bits of information about the state of one element will travel – imperfectly – to the state of the other element, forming its new state. This storage and transfer of information, possibly between levels of a multi level system, is imperfect due to randomness or noise. From this viewpoint, a system can be formalized as a collection of bits that is organized according to its rules of dynamics and its topology of interactions. Mapping out exactly how these bits of information percolate through the system reveals fundamental insights in how the parts orchestrate to produce the properties of the system.

 

A theory of information processing would be capable of defining a set of universal properties of dynamical multi level complex systems, which describe and compare the dynamics of diverse complex systems ranging from social interaction to brain networks, from financial markets to biomedicine. Each possible combination of rules of dynamics and topology of interactions, with disparate semantics could be translated into the language of information processing which in turn will provide a lingua franca for complex systems.

Second Conference on Network models and stress testing for financial stability

Second Conference on Network models and stress testing for financial stability | CxConferences | Scoop.it

Banco de México, the University of Zurich, Bank of Canada and the Journal of Financial Stability continue with the series of biennial conferences addressing novel research on network models and stress testing for financial stability.

The development of network and stress testing models have proven to be useful in achieving a better understanding of systemic risk. These approaches have been applied to study the implications of changes in the regulatory landscape, to understand and detect new threats to the stability of financial systems, and other financial stability related topics.

The conference aims to bring together policymakers and academics as well as industry representatives to examine progress in designing a safer financial system, to study the intended and unintended consequences of regulation on the global financial system, and to explore recent methodological advances in the study of systemic risk.

Algorithmic Design for Hybrid Collective Intelligence

The Algorithmic Design for Hybrid Collective Intelligence satellite (ADHEsIoN'17) is a one-day event in September 20, 2017, as part of the Conference on Complex Systems (CCS'17). This conference is the official annual conference of the Complex Systems Society and is scheduled to convene in September 17-22, 2017. The conference is interdisciplinary in nature, focusing on understanding how elements interact to give rise to global properties, along with how global properties can constrain these elements.

Overview

Across an increasingly broad spectrum of everyday life, artificial intelligence (AI) is challenging the utility of human intelligence. Yet modern AI often gains its power from exploiting big data resulting from human collective behaviors (e.g. web posting, crowdsourcing). Hence, while AI is often contrasted with human intelligence, both may be more synergistic than is usually admitted. We call for a reflection, on designs and processes that may oppose, or support, the intersection of AI and human intelligence, working towards an AI-enhanced, hybrid collective intelligence.

Submission Guidelines

We invite abstracts (~500 words; 1 Figure) for oral presentations (~20 min.) of work that address relevant challenges across a range of socio-technical domains including, but not limited to:​

  • AI-supported Team Collaboration: AI to promote smart pairing between individuals, tasks and resources, whilst preserving some control over the time of delivery; curating group dynamics for enhanced synchronicity and productivity whilst maintaining transparency;
  • Collective Decision Making: Promote enhanced collective decision making by exploiting the effect of simple rules on social network structures whilst avoiding discriminating effects;  
  • Collective Learning: Identify and exploit insight from past operations to support future actions (e.g. project bidding) whilst identifying and eliminating outliers in a robust, evidence-based way;  
  • Human-Computer Interaction: Elicit and aggregate information from online activity (e.g. user reputation) for various operations (e.g. online rating system) whilst dealing with ambiguity (e.g. self-contradictions, missing data) and malicious manipulations (e.g. spamming);
  • Open Science: Promote the reuse, redistribution and reproduction of research, whilst maintaining appropriate attribution of credit and rigor
  • Organizational Design: Organizations designed such that they promote enhanced collective functions (e.g. social learning, culture) whilst preserving accountability and auditability;
  • Rumor Propagation within Social/Collaborative Platforms: Maintaining their self-organized nature, whilst restricting the diffusion of falsehoods and emergence of ‘echo chambers’;
  • Science of Science: Using modern bibliographic data to identify fruitful research trajectories and develop robust productivity measures, whilst reducing the marginalization of underrepresented groups; 

Pervasive theoretical challenges across these exemplar domains include: 

  • Regulating self-organization of the collective in an auditable way;
  • Generating value from dormant information; 
  • Prediction and intrinsic limitations; 
  • Big vs. Useful Data;

 

Abstracts should be submitted at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=adhesion17. Deadline for submission is 30th of June 2017. All questions about submissions should be emailed to the organizers listed below.

Organizing committee
  • Dr Christos Ellinas (University of Bristol, Stevens Institute of Technology); 
  • Dr. Marc Santolini (Northeastern University; Harvard Medical School); 
  • Dr. Thomas Maillart (University of Geneva); 
  • Prof. Seth Bullock (University of Bristol);

Brains, Minds & Machines Summer Course 2017

The basis of intelligence – how the brain produces intelligent behavior and how we may be able to replicate intelligence in machines – is arguably the greatest problem in science and technology. To solve it, we will need to understand how human intelligence emerges from computations in neural circuits, with rigor sufficient to reproduce similar intelligent behavior in machines. Success in this endeavor ultimately will enable us to understand ourselves better, to produce smarter machines, and perhaps even to make ourselves smarter. Today’s AI technologies, such as Watson and Siri, are impressive, but their domain specificity and reliance on vast numbers of labeled examples are obvious limitations; few view this as brain-like or human intelligence. The synergistic combination of cognitive science, neurobiology, engineering, mathematics, and computer science holds the promise to build much more robust and sophisticated algorithms implemented in intelligent machines. The goal of this course is to help produce a community of leaders that is equally knowledgeable in neuroscience, cognitive science, and computer science and will lead the development of true biologically inspired AI.

7th Recurrence Plot Symposium 2017

August 23-25, 2017

São Paulo, Brazil
 

The objective of this Seventh Recurrence Plot Symposium is to encourage the exchange of knowledge and new ideas among scientists working in scientific disciplines of time- and spatial-series analyses. Recurrence plots and their quantifications are general methods for visualizing and analyzing both linear and nonlinear time-series data. After 30 years we continue to witness ongoing technical developments related to recurrence plots in both theoretical and practical domains. Some of these include: linkage of recurrence plots to network theory, inferences regarding directional couplings, identification of various spatio-temporal chaotic patterns, realization of tetherings across multiple scales of emergence, etc. Applications of recurrence plots are ever-expanding into such areas like mathematics, neuroscience, physiology, psychology, weather and climate patterns, financial systems, and linguistics. This symposium will provide a unique forum to facilitate the correlation of recent theoretical developments in recurrence science with applications from various and diverse fields of inquiry. We welcome both theoretical and applied contributions that effectively implement recurrence plots, recurrence quantifications and their related methodologies.

GEFENOL Summer School 2017

GEFENOL Summer School 2017 | CxConferences | Scoop.it
Statistical Physics, which was born as an attempt to explain thermodynamic properties of systems from its atomic and molecular components, has evolved into a solid body of knowledge that allows for the understanding of macroscopic collective phenomena. The tools developed by the Statistical Physics together with the Theory of Dynamical Systems are of key importance in the understanding of Complex Systems which are characterized by the emergent and collective phenomena of many interacting units. While the basic body of knowledge of Statistical Physics and Dynamical Systems is well described in textbooks at undergraduate or master level, the applications to open problems in the context of Complex Systems are well beyond the scope of those textbooks. Aiming at bridging this gap the Topical Group on Statistical and Non Linear Physics (GEFENOL)  of the Royal Spanish Physical Society is promoting the Summer School on Statistical Physics of Complex Systems series, open to PhD students and young postdocs world-wide.

The tools developed by the Statistical Physics together with the Theory of Dynamical Systems are of key importance in the understanding of Complex Systems which are characterized by the emergent and collective phenomena of many interacting units. While the basic body of knowledge of Statistical Physics and Dynamical Systems is well described in textbooks at undergraduate or master level, the applications to open problems in the context of Complex Systems are well beyond the scope of those textbooks. Aiming at bridging this gap the Topical Group on Statistical and Non Linear Physics (GEFENOL)  of the Royal Spanish Physical Society is promoting the Summer School on Statistical Physics of Complex Systems series, open to PhD students and young postdocs world-wide.
Following the spirit and concept of precedent succesful editions (Palma de Mallorca 2011, 2013, 2014, Benasque 2012, Barcelona 2015 and Pamplona 2016)  the 7th edition will take place from June 19 to 30, 2017. During these two weeks there will be a total of six courses

LANET 2017 - Latin American Conference on Complex Networks 2017

September 25-29, 2017, Puebla, Mexico

 

The aim of LANET is to provide with a forum to join all scientists who are somehow related to the research on Network Science in Latin America.

The rapid growth of the field of Network Science in the last two decades has manifested in the form of schools, workshops and conferences in Latin America. However, the creation of LANET as a stable and periodic forum devoted to Network Science will further spur the formation of research groups interested in the field and help to establish it as a discipline across Latin American Universities and Research Institutions.
