Journal on Self Computing (JSC)

Journal on Self Computing (JSC) | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Journal on Self Computing (JSC), a quarterly peer-reviewed journal, aims to provide a prestigious forum for researchers and practitioners world-wide to exchange new results in design and development of computers, networks, and control systems with self-properties, where examples of self-properties include self-stabilizing, self-organizing, self-repairing, self-healing, self-adaptive, self-aware, self-coordinating, self-protecting, etc. Its scope includes:

Autonomic and adaptive systems
Self-optimizing and self-protecting systems
Self-organizing computing and networking techniques
Impossibility results and lower bounds on self-computing
Self-properties and their relation with classical fault-tolerance and security
Self-techniques for sensor networks, ad-hoc networks, vehicular networks
Self-control and actuation systems
Cyber-physical systems with self-properties
Bio-inspired techniques on self-systems
Stochastic, physical, and biological models with self-properties

IBM Watson Advances a New Category of Cognitive Computing | SmartData Collective

IBM Watson Advances a New Category of Cognitive Computing | SmartData Collective | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

IBM Watson blends existing and innovative technology into a new approach called cognitive computing.
-
This innovative new approach to computing is designed to aid humans by working with natural language – English in the case of today’s Watson. This approach earned Watson the 2012 Technology Innovation Award in the category of Overall Operational Innovation.For those of you who are not used to the word cognitive, the foundation of cognition is the sum of all the thinking processes that contrib­ute to gaining knowledge for problem-solving. In computational systems these process­es are modeled using hardware and software; machine-based cognition thus is a step toward imbuing an arti­fi­cial system with attributes we typically consider human: the abilities to think and learn. Watson builds on a foundation of evidence from preexisting decisions and knowledge sources that it can load for reference in future inquiries. The evidence-based reasoning that Watson employs to answer question is part of the big deal in its approach.

Network diagrams simplified | Kim Rees

Network diagrams simplified | Kim Rees | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Network diagrams are notoriously messy. Even a small number of nodes can be overwhelmed by their chaotic placement and relationships. Cody Dunne of HCIL showed off his new work in simplifying these complex structures. In essence, he aggregates leaf nodes into a fan glyph that describes the underlying data in its size, arc, and color. Span nodes are similarly captured into crescent glyphs.

 

The result is an easy to read, high level look at the network. You can easily compare different sections of the network, understand areas that may have been occluded by the lines in a traditional diagram, and see relationships far more quickly.

 

I love the elegance and simplicity of Cody's work.

Application of Complexity Theory: Away from Reductionist Phase Transitions

Application of Complexity Theory: Away from Reductionist Phase Transitions | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
Reductionism persists as a useful node in the possibility space of understanding and managing the world around us. However the possibility space is now expanding to higher levels of resolution such as a focus on complex systems.

luiy's insight:

Reductionism persists as a useful node in the possibility space of understanding and managing the world around us. However the possibility space is now expanding to higher levels of resolution such as a focus on complex systems. Learning and tools are ratcheting in lock-step.

Some of the key complexity-related concepts in understanding collective behavior in real-life physical systems like the burning of a forest fire include:

  • Organization and Self-Organization: Self-orchestration into order in both living and non-living systems, for example: salt crystals, graphene, protein molecules, schools of fish, flocks of birds, bee hives, intelligence and the brain, social structures 

  • Order and Stability of Systems: Measurements of order, stability, and dynamical break-down in systems such as entropy, symmetry (and symmetry-breaking), critical point, phase transition, boundaries, and fractals (101 primer)

  • Tunable Parameters: An element or parameter which doesn’t control the system, but can be tuned to influence the performance of the system (for example, temperature is a tunable parameter in the complex system of water becoming ice) 

  • Perturbation and Reset: How and how quickly systems reset after being perturbed is another interesting aspect of complex systems

"Social network analysis is the mapping and measuring of relationships and flows between people, groups, organisations, computers or other information/knowledge processing entities." (Valdis Krebs, 2002). Social Network Analysis (SNA) is a method for visualizing our people and connection power, leading us to identify how we can best interact to share knowledge.

Social Network Analysis of “Big Data” to Improve Marketing Performance

Social Network Analysis of “Big Data” to Improve Marketing Performance | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

When I was in school, I was a fan of behavioral economics and spent a lot of time studying social networks from the perspective of both economics and social psychology. The reason these topics attracted me was that I wanted to understand the different ways people influence each other’s decision-making. I was a complete academic bear and not a marketing person at all at that time. However, I was eager to learn the intersection of these two concepts, and how they could be applied to business as well as society as a whole.


The study of this intersection is known as Social Network Analysis (SNA). But what exactly does it mean? Wikipedia gives us a simplified, but clear enough, definition. Let me tailor it a little bit. Social network analysis views social relationships with nodes and lines, using nodes to represent individual actors and lines between nodes to represent the relationships between the individuals, such as friendship, kinship, organizational positions, and so on. Combined with graph theory, the networks can be depicted in a social network diagram. The strength of the relationships can be depicted by the length or transparency of the lines in the diagram. The social influence of individuals can be viewed directly from the network diagram by the number of lines connected to the nodes and the scale of the nodes.


It's complicated, but SNA can deliver some fantastic insight for organizations looking to tap into the power of a social network.
