Education Program

SFI’s REU program provides an opportunity for young scientists from many disciplines to explore what a social science perspective brings to other fields and how traditionally quantitative disciplines can contribute to the social sciences. Each REU participant works with one or more SFI faculty mentors on a specific, mutually selected projects focusing on the computational properties of complex systems with particular, but not exclusive, emphasis on the social sciences.

School

The Complex Systems Summer School offers an intensive four week introduction to complex behavior in mathematical, physical, living, and social systems for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the sciences and social sciences. The school is for participants who seek background and hands-on experience to help them prepare to conduct interdisciplinary research in areas related to complex systems.

The program consists of an intensive series of lectures, laboratories, and discussion sessions focusing on foundational ideas, tools, and current topics in complex systems research. These include nonlinear dynamics and pattern formation, scaling theory, information theory and computation theory, adaptation and evolution, network structure and dynamics, adaptive computation techniques, computer modeling tools and specific applications of these core topics to various disciplines. In addition, participants will formulate and carry out team projects related to topics covered in the program.

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.

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.
