New Journal: Socio-Cognitive Systems

9 June 2018

A new journal that looks at simulations and systems that integrate social and cognitive aspects into a single framework. We (Frank Dignum and I) hope to focus and stimulate research which does not just look at one side (cognitive or social) with only a nod to the other. Much of human cognition is fundamentally social and makes no sense away from its social context. Much social phenomena can only occur (and thus be understood) when there is sufficient cognitive hooks (e.g. context-sensitivity or face recognition). Thus we hope to focus and stimulate research which does not just look at one side (cognitive or social) with only a nod to the other, but integrates the two aspects and understands them together.

UK Gov Report: Computational Modelling: Technological Futures

20 February 2018

A government report outlining the opportunities and characteristics of the field of computational modelling, which is what the Centre for Policy Modelling does, and which I (Bruce Edmonds) helped write. The report is at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/computational-modelling-blackett-review
