Meeting resistance

May 20, 2018 by Complexity Digest   Comments (0)

Almost as soon as antibiotics were discovered to be valuable in medicine, resistance emerged among bacteria. Whenever mutating or recombining organisms are faced with extirpation, those individuals with variations that avert death will survive and reproduce to take over the population. This can happen rapidly among organisms that reproduce fast and outpace our efforts to combat them. Thus, our use of chemical entities to rid ourselves of clinical, domestic, and agricultural pathogens and pests...

BrainComputing: Theoretical Neuroscience and its Applications, CCS18 Satellite

May 18, 2018 by Complexity Digest   Comments (0)

Neuroscience is a highly interdisciplinary field focused on uncovering the dynamics of brain and, more in general, the complex functions and structures of neural systems. These topics constitute paradigmatic examples of complex systems, and can be studied by using different frameworks, spanning from nonlinear dynamics to complex networks. In addition, the increasing availability of data coming from tools like fMRI, EEG, and others, has strongly supported new investigations. At the same time,...

10 Breakthrough Technologies Making Promising Progress in 2018

May 18, 2018 by Complexity Digest   Comments (0)

Dueling neural networks. Artificial embryos. AI in the cloud. Welcome to our annual list of the 10 technology advances we think will shape the way we work and live now and for years to come.   Every year since 2001 the people at Technology Review have picked what they call the 10 Breakthrough Technologies. People often ask, what exactly is meant by “breakthrough”? It’s a reasonable question—some of the picks haven’t yet reached widespread use, while others may...

Centralized vs. Decentralized Social Welfare Maximizers

May 17, 2018 by Falkenblog   Comments (0)

Faith in a select group of public servants to maximize social welfare is no better founded than the belief in the supernatural gifts of kings or noblemen. Just as misguided is the idea that good things, as decided by a majority, should be mandated. It should be remembered that our current prosperity and freedom have resulted from unwanted gradual changes in mores related to property rights, which when firmly established sparked the Industrial Revolution. Nobody planned that. Property rights...
