CSH Talk by Hiroshi Matusuzoe: “Geometry of estimating functions on deformed exponential families”

Jun 06, 2019 | 15:0016:00
Complexity Science Hub Vienna, Josefstaedter Straße 39

The lecture by Hiroshi Matusuzoe from Nagoya Institute of Technology will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. Location: Salon If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at Abstract A deformed exponential family is a natural generalization of an ordinary exponential family, and it is useful for robust statistics. However, the standard maximum likelihood method does not work efficiently for deformed exponential families. In this talk, we introduce generalized estimating functions for deformed exponential families, and give…

The lecture by Olga Saukh will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna in room 201. If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at   Abstract Great public speakers are made, not born. Practicing a presentation in front of colleagues is common practice and results in a set of subjective judgements what could be improved. In this paper we describe the design and implementation of a mobile app which estimates the quality of speaker’s delivery in real time…

The lecture by Simon Schweighofer will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna in room 201. If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at Abstract Polarization is threatening the stability of democratic societies. Until now, research has focused on the extremeness aspect of polarization, and failed to explain the correlation between different polarized issues. We develop an opinion dynamics model based on psychological balance theory that, for the first time, is able to generate hyperpolarization, and to…

CSH Talk by Tuan Pham: “Opinion formation and Structural Balance on Coevolving Signed Networks”

Jun 28, 2019 | 15:0016:00

The lecture by Tuan Pham will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. Location: Salon If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at   Abstract:   We study opinion dynamics on a network of friendships and enmities, where agents' opinions and the relationships among them coevolve, although on separate timescales. We model the agents opinions and their relationships as binary spins and coupling constants, respectively. The dynamics of both spins and couplings are implemented via the Metropolis…

CSH Workshop: “Spatially and time resolved experimental complex systems”

Jul 22, 2019 | 9:3017:00
Complexity Science Hub Vienna, Josefstaedter Straße 39
Wien, 1080
+ Google Map

This workshop is organized by Jan Korbel,  Medical University of Vienna & CSH Vienna, and Dalibor Štys, ICS Nové Hrady. Room: E05 Abstract Owing to its excellent spatial and temporal resolution, video analysis belongs among the main methods for investigation of complex systems. Optical  image sequences simultaneously provide, in principle, both time-resolved information and spatial distribution of electromagnetic spectra. This information is technically limited which may impact proper understanding of the evolution of the structure of a complex  system. The…

CSH Workshop: “How can we reduce cyberhate?”

Aug 05, 2019Aug 07, 2019
Complexity Science Hub Vienna, Josefstaedter Straße 39
Wien, 1080
+ Google Map

This workshop is organized by David Garcia,  Medical University of Vienna & CSH Vienna. Abstract   Online hate (i.e., cyberhate) refers to a behavior in which people send extreme, harassing, threatening, or insulting messages concerning, for example, sexual orientation, religious conviction, ethnic background, disability, appearance, or gender to intentionally hurt others. This kind of aggressive behavior can lead to serious short- and long-term consequences for individuals and societies including increased terrorist-group activity, discrimination against minorities, violent conflicts, or even war.…

CSH Colloquium: “Sustainability—a complex challenge”

Sep 11, 2019 | 14:0016:00
Complexity Science Hub Vienna, Josefstaedter Straße 39
Wien, 1080

This colloquium with short lectures, followed by a panel discussion, is open to an interested public.   If you like to attend, please register at the end of the page. The lecture will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna in Room E02.   Abstract:   Popular ideas about sustainability are still largely guided by a techno-scientific ideal of control. Hence, limits and difficulties of this ideal have become obvious. Is there a more adequate methodology for a sustainability…

This workshop entitled "Sustainability as a Problem of Complexity: Past, Present and Future of Sustainability Science in the Anthropocene" is organized by CSH Vienna's External Faculty member Manfred Laubichler together with Guido Caniglia, scientific director of the Konrad Lorenz Institute.   Attendance is only possible by invitation only. Concept Popular ideas about sustainability are still largely guided by a techno-scientific ideal of control, even though limits and difficulties of this ideal have been obvious for some time. Often fueled by…

The lecture by Carlos Molinero and Simon Rella from CSH Vienna will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. Location: 201 If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at   Carlos Molinero: "How fractal geometry determines urban scaling laws" Urban scaling laws characterise non-linear and linear behaviours that occur in the context of a city. They relate population size to a large number of variables and are fundamental to achieve a comprehensive explanation of the urban environment. This…
