The Complexity Map Version 5

The Complexity Map Version 5 | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Hello everyone!  As you can see above,  I have (once again) updated my map of the complexity sciences.

Philippe Vallat's insight:

Interesting overview including the history of complexity sciences

Pouvons-nous comprendre “la sagesse des foules” si nous ne savons pas comment fonctionnent les comportements collectifs ?

Paradoxalement, alors que la sagesse des foules devient un lieu commun des milieux high-tech, les travaux théoriques sur la question semblent rencontrer quelques difficultés. Apparemment, nous ne comprenons pas encore bien la nature de ces essaims, malgré la puissance de nos simulations.

Stigmergy

Stigmergy | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
Kind people have stigmergically translated this article into German and French. This article is part of a series: ‘Governance and other systems of mass collaboration’. Stigmergy is a me...
Philippe Vallat's insight:

Stigmergy is a mechanism of indirect coordination between agents or actions. The principle is that the trace left in the environment by an action stimulates the performance of a next action, by the same or a different agent. In that way, subsequent actions tend to reinforce and build on each other, leading to the spontaneous emergence of coherent, apparently systematic activity. Stigmergy is a form of self-organization. It produces complex, seemingly intelligent structures, without need for any planning, control, or even direct communication between the agents.

Great post, have you tried combining this with what Holacracy has to offer as a governance tool with distributed power? Seems there are synergies.
Pierre Johnson's comment, January 21, 2013 2:15 AM
I have thought of it, and will investigate it. FYI, I have found that Stigmergy my be a synonym of Distributed Intelligence. Who would agree on this?

Structural diversity in social contagion

Structural diversity in social contagion | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

The concept of contagion has steadily expanded from its original grounding in epidemic disease to describe a vast array of processes that spread across networks, notably social phenomena such as fads, political opinions, the adoption of new technologies, and financial decisions. (...) We find that the probability of contagion is tightly controlled by the number of connected components in an individual's contact neighborhood, rather than by the actual size of the neighborhood. Surprisingly, once this “structural diversity” is controlled for, the size of the contact neighborhood is in fact generally a negative predictor of contagion. More broadly, our analysis shows how data at the size and resolution of the Facebook network make possible the identification of subtle structural signals that go undetected at smaller scales yet hold pivotal predictive roles for the outcomes of social processes.

Why Big Data will never beat business intuition

Why Big Data will never beat business intuition | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
It might well offer many benefits to companies, but don’t worship it as the new business religion.

Philippe Vallat's curator insight, June 22, 2013 1:18 AM

Big data shall improve business. Really?

 

What about uncertainty, unpredictable systems and the value of social relationships (simply said: we, humans)?

Identification boosts conflicts

Identification boosts conflicts | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Our claim is that identification boosts conflicts, and we suggest to address identities dynamics from a complex perspective, focusing on the processes instead of the entities, allowing ‘relational identities’ to emerge from interactions of the agents involved in the organization.

 

 

Philippe Vallat's insight:

Relationships are the heart. See also the Agile Manifesto: "Individuals and interactions over processes and tools".

Le comportement des fourmis renseigne sur la formation des réseaux sociaux

Le comportement des fourmis renseigne sur la formation des réseaux sociaux | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Les fourmis apporteraient une solution à la difficulté des chercheurs du domaine du comportement humain pour analyser les mécanismes à l'origine de la construction d'un réseau social. Ces insectes seraient en effet proches des humains de par leur capacité à s'adapter à un environnement dynamique et à trouver leur chemin vers un autre nœud. De plus, à la différence des humains, ceux-ci peuvent constituer un panel important et neutre, chose délicate à trouver dans notre société…

Les chercheurs de Facebook, menés par Eytan Bakshy, ont publié une nouvelle étude s’intéressant à comment les gens recevaient et réagissaient à l’information dans le cadre du réseau social. Une étude qui nous invite à “Repenser la diversité de l’information dans les réseaux"
