Data Ecologies is a symposium series investigating the connections between data systems, processes, physical systems as well as constructed and natural ecologies. This year's meeting investigates the problems of model building, complexity, communication and interaction. How do we see what we see, how do we build systems that seamlessly integrate with natural systems, what is the mathematics of reality, what is complexity at all?
This meeting is aimed at those operating on the boundary layers between disciplines, where the investigation of perception meets the construction of realities, where quantum theories of language and perception meet complexity analysis of ecosystems, where the ever present divide between the 'arts' and the 'sciences' can be looked at hard and deep.
The format will be a series of talks with extended discussions. The whole process will be streamed, so remote participation is possible.
Confirmed Speakers are:
- Kirsty Kitto (Adelaide): on models, interpretations, alife, process physics.
- Hans Diebner (Frankfurt): hermeneutics, cybernetics, endophysics, performative logic.
- Julie Tolmie (London): visualisation, maths-arts-physics-games connections.
- Peter Bruza (Brisbane): ecologies of services, quantum nature of cognition and language.
- Bruno Marchal (Brussels): physics, computation, psychology, mathematicalism.
- Maja Kuzmanovic (Brussels): complex ecologies, man-made and organically-grown structures.
- Stephen (Pix) Pickles (Berlin): programmer, performance, complex systems as explored systems.
