Various notes on complex-systems:

A brief discussion on the VPEC-T model:

  • taotwit: Excellent [1+hr] video on Complex Adaptive Systems – I’m using this model as a guide for designing an Event Network http://bit.ly/2jHPtu // Complex Adaptive and #vpect work well together: V: Agent Goals/Values, Policy: Light-constraints, Lever-points, Events: Adaptive behavior // “Agents communicate via Signals” (Events) John Holland PhD in Complex Adaptive Systems
  • tetradian: @taotwit ‘”Agents communicate via Signals” (Events)’ – what about Content of signal? (i.e. Signal=Event+Content)
  • taotwit: @tetradian In my current model Event messages contain Content or point to it. Exactly like Twitter and tweets pointing to content // Event: Going Out (Event Content): I’m leaving my house – (to go to) (linked Content) http://bit.ly/mdAJD
  • tetradian: @taotwit okay, so an Event is in part defined/identified by (structure of) its embedded Content – ie. Event is always a Signal w Content?
  • taotwit: yes, that’s about it
