You are invited to attend the next scheduled Krasnow Monday Seminar on March 20. Dr. Bill Kennedy, Center for Social Complexity and CSS, will present “The Challenge of Modeling Cognition for Computational Social Science.”
Computational Social Science (CSS) uses models of cognition, mostly human cognition. Zero intelligence agents may be useful for some economic experiments and agents with preferences about their neighbors and moving randomly may demonstrate the emergence of segregation, but better models of individual’s cognition are needed to advance CSS. This talk will review the development of some of the models of cognition that have been used in the Center for Social Complexity, are being developed in the Center, and are being planned for the future.
Krasnow seminars are held in room 229 of the Krasnow Building on Mason’s Fairfax campus Mondays from 4pm-5pm.
