CAPS 2018: Complexity And Policy Studies

CAPS 2018: Complexity And Policy Studies | Complexity and Random Overlaps | Scoop.it

CAPS 2018 is the second International Conference on Complexity and Policy Studies. This is a cross-disciplinary conference for research in which the tools of Complex Systems are used to examine a wide range of policies and procedures that promote, emphasize, contribute to, improve, or otherwise positively affect society. This scope includes new definitions, measures, and methodologies for tracking, understanding, and predicting impacts and trends, data sets, analytical methods, actors and populations, dynamic models, or social-level analysis.

Network Medicine: Complex Systems in Human Disease and Therapeutics

Big data, genomics, and quantitative approaches to network-based analysis are combining to advance the frontiers of medicine as never before. Network Medicine introduces this rapidly evolving field of medical research, which promises to revolutionize the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. With contributions from leading experts that highlight the necessity of a team-based approach in network medicine, this definitive volume provides readers with a state-of-the-art synthesis of the progress being made and the challenges that remain.

Medical researchers have long sought to identify single molecular defects that cause diseases, with the goal of developing silver-bullet therapies to treat them. But this paradigm overlooks the inherent complexity of human diseases and has often led to treatments that are inadequate or fraught with adverse side effects. Rather than trying to force disease pathogenesis into a reductionist model, network medicine embraces the complexity of multiple influences on disease and relies on many different types of networks: from the cellular-molecular level of protein-protein interactions to correlational studies of gene expression in biological samples. The authors offer a systematic approach to understanding complex diseases while explaining network medicine’s unique features, including the application of modern genomics technologies, biostatistics and bioinformatics, and dynamic systems analysis of complex molecular networks in an integrative context.

By developing techniques and technologies that comprehensively assess genetic variation, cellular metabolism, and protein function, network medicine is opening up new vistas for uncovering causes and identifying cures of disease.

Mapping the Themes, Impact, and Cohesion of Creativity Research over the Last 25 Years | Complexity and Random Overlaps | Scoop.it

 

This article describes the themes found in the past 25 years of creativity research. Computational methods and network analysis were used to map keyword theme development across ~1,400 documents and ~5,000 unique keywords from 1990 (the first year keywords are available in Web of Science) to 2015.

Can we ever kick our smartphone addiction? Jim Balsillie and Norman Doidge discuss

Can we ever kick our smartphone addiction? Jim Balsillie and Norman Doidge discuss | Complexity and Random Overlaps | Scoop.it

A psychiatrist and author of two amazing books on the brain and the co-creator of the BlackBerry debate how we've become dependent on our digital devices and what can be done to remedy it. I found this article that originally appeared in the Globe and Mail fascinating. It was about much more than cell phone addiction. Stick with it to the end and you will learn about how babies learn to communicate in the first two years of life and how Marshal McLuhan's the medium is the message continues to impact us.

How Self-Organization Happens

How Self-Organization Happens | Complexity and Random Overlaps | Scoop.it


Self-organization refers to natural processes of human relating, that are similar at all scales of order in the natural world.The dynamics of self-organization are much more rich and complex than the simple patterns we use to model them.Being able to make sense of these dynamics enables us to build new potentials in teams. The level of trust rises when we recognize our basic human capacity to collaborate with each other. Narrative-based applications can visualize some of the subtle patterns that shape a team’s potential for acting in certain ways (and not others) over time.
There isn't one specific pattern that emerges from self-organization. The processes are so deep and fundamental to human interactions, that you cannot enforce any specific hierarchical or non-hierarchical pattern with rules.  Trust between people is an outcome of allowing people to freely self-organize. Complex networks of trust emerge and change as people continuously negotiate their relationships.

"Third, we’re seeing the spontaneous rise of collaborative production: goods, services and organisations are appearing that no longer respond to the dictates of the market and the managerial hierarchy. The biggest information product in the world – Wikipedia – is made by volunteers for free, abolishing the encyclopedia business and depriving the advertising industry of an estimated $3bn a year in revenue.

Almost unnoticed, in the niches and hollows of the market system, whole swaths of economic life are beginning to move to a different rhythm. Parallel currencies, time banks, cooperatives and self-managed spaces have proliferated, barely noticed by the economics profession, and often as a direct result of the shattering of the old structures in the post-2008 crisis.

You only find this new economy if you look hard for it. In Greece, when a grassroots NGO mapped the country’s food co-ops, alternative producers, parallel currencies and local exchange systems they found more than 70 substantive projects and hundreds of smaller initiatives ranging from squats to carpools to free kindergartens

The unfolding and control of network cascades

  A characteristic property of networks is their ability to propagate
influences, such as infectious diseases, behavioral changes, and failures. An
especially important class of such contagious dynamics is that of cascading
processes. These processes include, for example, cascading failures in
infrastructure systems, extinctions cascades in ecological networks, and
information cascades in social systems. In this review, we discuss recent
progress and challenges associated with the modeling, prediction, detection,
and control of cascades in networks.
