Complexity Explorer unveils a brand-new course on the many faces of computational complexity, with SFI Professor Cris Moore. The content is appropriate for learners from any background (and no mathematical heavy lifting required).
By using transmission to our advantage, we can eliminate coronavirus through citizen-based medicine.
NPR’s David Brancaccio is hosting a free, virtual book club around the CORE team's introductory econ textbook.
In The Ethical Algorithm: The Science of Socially Aware Algorithm Design, SFI External Professor Michael Kearns and his University of Pennsylvania colleague Aaron Roth offer a set of principled solutions based on the emerging science of socially aware algorithm design.
SFI’s “social reactor” kicked into overdrive this summer, welcoming 163 undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals. Intensive summer programs form the core of the Institute’s educational programming, bringing future complexity scholars to Santa Fe to train with leading scientists. This year, the Graduate Workshop in Computational Social Science and Complexity (GWCSS) celebrated its 25th anniversary with programming for alumni as well as a new cohort of advanced graduate students.
Artificial Intelligence: A Guide for Thinking Humans is a solid history of how we got from pocket calculators to facial recognition and self-driving cars, a lucid tour of how these systems operate, and a measured warning against placing more trust in these systems than they deserve.
Jessica Flack presents an SFI Community Lecture on collective computation at The Lensic Performing Arts Center on October 22.
External Professor Raissa D’Souza has won the Network Science Society’s inaugural Euler award for her influential work in "the discovery and study of explosive percolation in networks and the insights it provided to explosive synchronization and network optimization.”
A television production written and hosted by SFI Professor Cris Moore won a 2019 Rocky Mountain Emmy Award in the instructional/informational category.
SFI's free online course, Introduction to Dynamical Systems and Chaos with College of the Atlantic professor David Feldman, begins Oct. 1. Topics to be covered include: phase space, bifurcations, chaos, the butterfly effect, strange attractors, and pattern formation.
A new paper in Animal Behaviour lays out three concepts from complex systems science that could advance studies into animal social complexity.
“Subtitle heroes,” as they’re known in the SFI education office, are a community of people worldwide who have dedicated their time to making SFI’s online courses available in 63 languages to date.
Agent-based modeling has been used to study everything from economics to biology to political science to business and management. This July, programmers and non-programmers alike can learn to model by enrolling in Introduction to Agent-based Modeling, an online course offered through SFI's Complexity Explorer.
This June, Complexity Explorer offers its first course based on unsettled research into the "Origins of Life."
The 2019 InterPlanetary Festival takes place June 14-16 in Santa Fe, NM.
Modular — or cliquey — group structure isolates the flow of communication between individuals, which might seem counterproductive to survival. But for some animal groups, more information isn't necessarily better, according to new SFI research published in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.
