The primary questions we wish to explore include: (1) Are there fundamental units and network structures contributing to cultural systems and how might we identify them? (2) What are the rules of cultural transmission that operate on these units and networks? (3) How do these units and networks come together to assume new meanings, giving rise to new transmission mechanisms? (4) How do these units and networks change through time, and do they follow predictable trends?

Topical Meeting

The ever-increasing size and complexity of large-scale software systems is one of the greatest challenges facing business, government, and academia today. Such systems are "interdependent webs of software-intensive systems, people, policies, cultures, and economics", representing unprecedented aggregations of one or more of the following quantities": (1) lines of code; (2) amount of data stored, accessed, manipulated, and refined; (3) number of connections and interdependencies; (4) number of hardware elements; (5) number of computational elements; (6) number of system purposes and user perception of these purposes; (7) number of routine processes, interactions, and “emergent behaviors”; (8) number of (overlapping) policy domains and enforceable mechanisms; (9) number of people involved in some way ((DOD Study on Ultra-Large-Scale Software Systems).

This SFI Business Network Topical Meeting, jointly organized by Fidelity and SFI, will explore ways in which the study of complex systems in other domains of science and technology can be valuable for large-scale software systems, survey the state of the art in verification and validation of large-scale software systems from the academic and corporate perspectives, and consider implications of large-scale systems for the financial industry.

Workshop

An intensive business applications-oriented introduction to agent-based modeling and simulation (ABMS) based on Michael North and Charles Macal’s new book Managing Business Complexity: Discovering Strategic Solutions with Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation (Oxford 2007). The first half of the course will focus on ABMS concepts from the perspective of company managers and analysts. The second half of the course will focus on ABMS implementation from the perspective of company software developers and will include extensive hands-on exercises. Participants are invited to attend the first session, the second session, or both depending on their interests. Each participant will receive a copy of Managing Business Complexity and break refreshments.

Held on May 16-20 at Argonne, IL.  Co-organized by SFI Business Network and Michael North and Charles Macal, Argonne National Laboratory.

Working Group

Complex systems ranging from ecosystems to financial markets and the climate may have tipping points where a sudden shift to a contrasting regime can occur. As such critical transitions can have dire consequences, being able to predict them is very important. Unfortunately, detecting critical points is extremely difficult as good predictive models are mostly lacking. However, recent work suggests that we may find empirical indicators to assess whether a system is approaching a tipping point (Scheffer 2009). Such generic early-warning indicators appear to work for all kinds of critical transitions and, in principle, can be identifiable in a wide range of complex systems like ecosystems, financial markets, or the climate.

LANL and the SFI are both exceptional scientific institutions, with a long relationship and sharing several common goals. However in the last few years this relationship has depended exclusively on the initiative of individual scientists. We believe that there is great potential for the SFI and LANL to collaborate on a more institutional basis for the benefit of both institutions.

To capitalize on this potential we are organizing the one-day workshop. The format will include technical presentations by scientists of both institutions, together with an opportunity for managers of the two institutions to explore collaboration possibilities.

SFI / NMC Program on Combining Information Theory and Game Theory

Organizers: David Wolpert (SFI External Faculty), Simon DeDeo (SFI Omidyar Fellow), Nils Bertschinger (Max Planck), Eckehard Olbrich (Max Planck), Eric Smith (SFI External Faculty), Luis Bettencourt (SFI)

How a single agent (human, fi rm, animal, etc.) behaves typically depends on what information it has about its environment, and on its preferences. Accordingly, the joint behavior of multiple interacting agents can depend strongly on the information available to the separate agents, both about one another, and about external random variables. Precisely how the joint behavior depends on the information available to the agents is determined by the preferences of those agents. So in general there is a strong interplay among the preferences of all the agents, their behavior, and the information structure connecting them.

One tool that might help us understand this interplay is Shannon information theory. In Shannon information theory, information is a function of a distribution. Increasing the amount of information in a distribution means making that distribution more tightly concentrated. This de finition applies not only if the support of the distribution shrinks or expands, but also if it moves.

Another tool that might help us understand the interplay is game theory. In contrast to Shannon information theory, game theory does not quantify information in terms of properties of probability distributions. Rather the information available to a player is quanti fied as an "information set," specifying a set of states the world might be in. The amount of information available to a player increases if such an information set shrinks. In contrast to the case with Shannon information theory, the change in information for moving an information set is undefi ned.

There are other di fferences between information theory and game theory. For example, whereas the foundations of Shannon information theory concern a single player (the designer of a communication network), the foundations of game theory concern multiple players.

Reconciling the di fferent perspectives on information in Shannon information theory and game theory could have many benefi ts. Most directly, it may help us understand the interplay among the preferences of a set of interacting players, their behavior, and the information structure connecting them. As potential examples, it might help us address issues like the following:

1. How do information theoretic quanti fications of the joint behavior of a set of interacting players (e.g., mutual information between actions of pairs of them) vary with changes to the preferences of those players?

2. Can relating the philosophical foundations of the two fields improve them? For example, as Shannon himself emphasized, Shannon information is purely "syntactic," quantifying the amount of information in a distribution purely by how concentrated it is. Can the utility functions of game theory—which depend not just on how concentrated a distribution is, but also on where it is concentrated—be used to de fine a "semantic" variant of Shannon information?

3. Can relating the mathematical formalisms of the two fields improve them? For example, are there analogs of the powerful theorems of information theory for game-theoretic quantities, e.g., game theoretic versions of results concerning rate distortion tradeoff s, the data processing inequality, etc.?

More generally, greater understanding of the relation between information theory and game theory may generate breakthroughs in many disciplines, including economics, political science, cognitive sciences and arti ficial intelligence.

Working Group

In view of the epochal changes in the US healthcare system already underway as a result of the Affordable Care Act, this Topical Meeting is a roll-up-your-sleeves working group to address the questions: What kind(s) of model(s) of the US healthcare system do business, government, the consumer, and the healthcare system itself want and need?  What are the desired level (or levels) of granularity for particular stakeholders and particular needs?  Are there the interest, capability, and support among SFI Business Network members and their collaborators to embark upon one or more such modeling efforts?  The keynote speaker will be noted healthcare expert Stephen Hyde, author of "Cured! The Insider's Handbook for Health Care Reform".  Stephen has been a public company CEO and board member of numerous health care companies, as well as a federal managed care regulator, insurance expert, medical group CEO, actuary, consultant, and entrepreneur.

Topical Meeting

Venue: Santa Fe Institute, Santa Fe, NM

Summary: Technological change is a key component of economic growth. However, economists' treatment of this is typically at an aggregate level, in which technology is represented merely as a single number called the "total factor productivity". This workshop will bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines to make first steps toward constructing a theory of technological change. The discussions will focus on understanding ecosystems of interacting technologies and the factors that cause them to evolve through time. Please join this foremost group of experts, economists, biologists, applied mathematicians, physicists, engineers, archaeologists, and anthropologists for a one-day event in Santa Fe.

The workshop is supported by the Santa Fe Institute, the Institute for New Economic Thinking and the U.S. Department of Energy.

Venue: Hilton Garden Inn Austin Downtown, Austin, TX

Program Coordinator: Melanie Mitchell, Professor, Computer Science, Portland State University; External Professor, Santa Fe Institute; author of Complexity: A Guided Tour, winner of Phi Beta Kappa Society's 2010 Book Award in Science.

Summary: This two-and-a-half day introductory course focuses on the science of networks: a new field that studies common principles of complex networks across disciplines. Social and economic networks, food webs, the World Wide Web, and the power grid are examples of the kinds of systems that network science seeks to understand. In this course, taught by prominent Santa Fe Institute faculty and associates, you will learn the basic concepts and tools of this new science, and see several case studies of their application in diverse areas. You will also have the opportunity for discussion with the faculty and other participants about applications within your own areas of interest. You will come away with an understanding and appreciation of the importance of network science for biology, ecology, economics, business, human health, social life, and other pursuits.

Additional information about the course, a detailed schedule, and logistics can be found on our wiki.

Tuition:

General: $1,200

We are pleased to offer five Business Network Member tuitions at a 50% discount off the current $1,200 fee. Network members will be responsible for their own meals and housing. Additional slots may be available at regular tuition cost. The five reduced-tuition slots are available on a first-come, first-served basis by return email to Casey Cox.

Symposium

Venue: The Bishop's Lodge, Santa Fe, NM

Summary: One can hardly read a newspaper, listen to a news broadcast, or open a web page without encountering the words "Big Data", often in gushing terms, and often accompanied by extreme claims. This symposium will explore the promise and the limitations of "Big Data" in science, technology, business, politics, and government. In particular, we will examine the importance of big data in light of the questions being asked and the theoretical context in which big data are analyzed and interpreted.
