Today at ISCTE-IUL we’ll have a seminar by David Hales. David Hales is a researcher at the Open University in the United Kingdom. His research is at the overlap between computer science and social science. He has a background is Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence but he has spent a lot of time with Sociologists, Philosophers and even lapsed Economists doing simulations.
He has been doing a lot of interesting research and his talk today is about “The socio-economics of distributed systems (why computer people need to think about political economy and other issues)“.
The seminar is Friday, 3rd June 2011, 18h00 at ISCTE-IUL, building 2, room C402
Later this year, he will also be the Keynote speaker of the PhD in Progress Workshop that I’m organising in Vienna during ECCS’11, so if you can’t see him talk today, you can always joins us in the European Conference on Complex Systems and have a good time!
