Σεμινάριο Τμήματος & CEID social hour

 

Ημερομηνία-χώρος: Παρασκευή 06 Μαρτίου, 3-5μμ, Κτίριο Β (Αίθουσα Β4)

Τίτλος: Local(ity) Rules

Περίληψη: Natural algorithms was a term coined by B. Chazelle to introduce a new approach in analyzing dynamic systems in nature (e.g., flocking) from an algorithmic perspective. This is part of a general vision of seeing algorithms as a new tool for expressing and analyzing problems, supplementing well known tools like differential equations. A striking characteristic of most natural algorithms is that a certain unexpected behavior emerges from simple local interactions between numerous (but not so many) agents. In this talk, we will discuss such examples taken from the biological and social domain. Then, we will look at a simple model, termed network system that may be strong enough to express emergence while at the same time simple enough to allow analysis.
