On The Emerging Future Of Complexity Sciences, ACM Ubiquity Magazine
Excerpts: Complexity as a phenomenon is omnipresent in natural, social, business, artificial, engineered or hybrid systems. Cells, organisms, the ecosystem, companies, supply networks, markets, societies, governments, cities, regions, countries, large scale software and hardware systems, the Internet, all are examples of complex systems. Despite this omnipresence there is no commonly accepted, crisp and robust definition or classification of complex systems and one might ask why we would expect commonalities among such systems despite their obvious differences.
On Modelling The Immune System As A Complex System, Theor. Biosc.
Excerpts: We argued that immune system is an adaptive complex system. It is shown that it has emergent properties. Its network structure is of the small world network type. The network is of the threshold type, which helps in avoiding autoimmunity. It has the property that every antigen (e.g. virus or bacteria) is typically attacked by more than one effector. This stabilizes the equilibrium state. Modelling complex systems is discussed. Cellular automata (CA)-type models are successful, but there are much less analytic results about CA than about other less successful models e.g. partial differential equations (PDE). A compromise is proposed.
Life, The Universe, And Everything, Wired
WIRED: I hear you're a quantum computer repair guy.
LLOYD: Yes, I am a quantum mechanic! Those darn quantum computers break all the time.
You've jumped from working on quantum computers to saying, oh, by the way, the universe is a gigantic quantum computer.
When you zap things with light to build quantum computers, you're hacking existing systems. You're hijacking the computation that's already happening in the universe, just like a hacker takes over someone else's computer.
What is the universe computing when we are not hijacking it for our own purposes?
It computes itself. It computes the flow of orange juice as you drink it, or the position of each atom in your cells.
Far Out, Man. But Is It Quantum Physics?, NY Times
Excerpts: Many physicists today say the waves that symbolize quantum possibilities are so fragile they collapse with the slightest encounter with their environment. Conscious observers are not needed. As Dr. Albert pointed out, Wigner framed the process in strict mathematical and probabilistic terms. "The desires and intentions of the observer had nothing to do with it," he said. In other words, reality is out of our control. It's all atoms and the void, as Democritus said so long ago. Indeed, some physicists say the most essential and independent characteristic of reality, whatever that is, is randomness. It's a casino universe.
Black Holes: The Ultimate Quantum Computers?, NewScientist.com
Excerpts: Nearly all of the information that falls into a black hole escapes back out, a controversial new study argues. The work suggests that black holes could one day be used as incredibly accurate quantum computers - if enormous theoretical and practical hurdles can first be overcome.
Supercomputer Builds A Virus, Nature News
Excerpts: One of the world's most powerful supercomputers has built a computer model of the satellite tobacco mosaic virus. The researchers say the simulation is the first to capture a whole biological organism in such intricate molecular detail. Running on a machine at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, Urbana, the program...
Saturn Moon Has Geysers, Hinting Life Is A Possibility, NY Times
With newly discovered signs of liquid water, a moon of Saturn joins the small, highly select group of places in the solar system that could plausibly support life.
NASA, JPL, Space Science Institute via Associated Press Photos taken by the Cassini spacecraft showed evidence of liquid water spewing from geysers on Enceladus, one of Saturn's icy moons.
The moon, Enceladus, is only 300 miles wide, and usually something that small is nothing more than a frozen chunk of ice and rock. Instead, NASA's Cassini spacecraft has spotted eruptions of icy crystals, which hint at pockets of liquid water near the surface.
Nasa's Cassini Discovers Potential Liquid Water On Enceladus
Excerpts: NASA's Cassini spacecraft may have found evidence of liquid water reservoirs that erupt in Yellowstone-like geysers on Saturn's moon Enceladus. The rare occurrence of liquid water so near the surface raises many new questions about the mysterious moon.
Image right: Plumes of icy material extend above the southern polar region of Saturn's moon Enceladus as imaged by the Cassini spacecraft in February 2005. The monochrome view is presented along with a color-coded version on the right. The latter reveals a fainter and much more extended plume component.
Enceladus: Cosmic Gymnast, Volatile Miniworld, Science
Excerpts: The exploration of Saturn by the Cassini/Huygens mission has yielded a rich collection of data about the planet and its rings and moons, in particular its small satellite Enceladus and giant satellite Titan. Once believed too small to be active, Enceladus has been found to be one of the most geologically dynamic objects in the solar system. Among the surprises are a watery, gaseous plume; a south polar hot spot; and a surface marked by deep canyons and thick flows.
Astrophysics: Ancient Blast Comes To Light, Nature
Excerpts: Light from the oldest and farthest stellar explosion yet seen was emitted when the Universe was a mere infant. It provides a close-up view of how and when stars formed, and how they affect the primordial gas around them.
A trio of contributions to this issue presents observations of the most distant stellar explosion ever seen: a -ray burst (GRB) that took place when the Universe (currently accepted age, roughly 13.7 billion years) was only about 900 million years old. Thus, for the first time, the most distant objects that can be identified spectroscopically are not just galaxies - and therefore huge agglomerates of stars, gas and dust - but also individual stars.
Software Helps Develop Hunches, Wired
Excerpts: It's the paradox of human-computer interaction. Computers can process huge numbers quickly and without bias, but programming them to detect faces, trees and puppies is incredibly difficult. Determining beautiful, pristine or cute is impossible.
People, on the other hand, are adept at recognizing patterns. Even newborn humans show a tendency to prefer human faces, demonstrating that the pattern-recognition part of us is deep and innate.
Excerpts: The first European research unit dedicated to fundamental cross-disciplinary research has been launched with support from the ESF (European Science Foundation). (...)
The IPL [Institute Para Limes, Ed.] will also strive to establish multi-disciplinary science as a field in its own right spawning new avenues of research. The model for IPL is the highly acclaimed Santa Fe Institute in New Mexico, USA, which has already shown that multiple disciplines can be melded to create new fruitful directions for research. This happened in the fast expanding field of computational biology, which the Santa Fe Institute helped to create by bringing together mathematicians, physicists and information scientists.
Cell Biology: When The Tail Wags The Dog, Nature
Excerpts: Flagella are whip-like structures that power the movement of certain cells. Analysis of a single-cell parasite, the African trypanosome, reveals that flagella are also essential for viability in this organism.
Many cells can move from one position to another, by various means. One locomotive structure that emerged early in evolution is a whip-like appendage called the flagellum that propels the cell by a cyclical beating motion. Stationary cells also use flagella and their shorter relatives, cilia, to move liquid across their surface, as in the lining of air passages for example.
Neurobiology: How Fast Can You Go?, Nature
Excerpts: Rhythmic activities such as walking need tight coordination. In mice, pace is tweaked by a specific set of spinal-cord neurons that, surprisingly, make the animals walk faster by inhibiting the underlying circuit.
Watch your step ¡X walking may seem simple, but is actually quite a complex task. As with other rhythmic motor behaviours (breathing or swallowing, say), locomotion relies on a finely tuned neuronal network that is headquartered in the spinal cord1, 2.
Biological Chemistry: Catalytic Competition For Cells, Nature
Excerpts: Ways of evolving proteins, and assessing the vast numbers of variants needed to identify those with novel enzymatic activity, are themselves evolving. Oil droplets containing basic cell machinery provide a promising approach.
The cell has the enviable ability to evolve through mutation of its hereditary DNA code. When we first learned how to mutate DNA in the test tube, and so manipulate the amino-acid sequence of a protein, we quickly learned how difficult it is to rationally alter protein function with just a few amino-acid changes.
Nanotech Helps Blind Hamsters See, BBC News
Excerpts: Nanotechnology has restored the sight of blind rodents, a new study shows.
Scientists mimicked the effect of a traumatic brain injury by severing the optical nerve tract in hamsters, causing the animals to lose vision.
After injecting the hamsters with a solution containing nanoparticles, the nerves re-grew and sight returned.
Writing in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the team hopes this technique could be used in future reconstructive brain surgery.
Optic Nerve Regrown With A Nanofibre Scaffold, NewScientist.com
Excerpts: Hamsters blinded following damage to their optic nerve have had their vision partially restored with the help of an implanted nanoscale scaffold that has encouraged nerve tissue to regrow. The method uses sequences of peptides made to self-assemble into mesh-like sheets of nanofibers by immersing them in salt solutions at similar concentrations.
Engineering Cooperativity In Biomotor-Protein Assemblies, Science
Excerpts: A biosynthetic approach was developed to control and probe cooperativity in multiunit biomotor assemblies by linking molecular motors to artificial protein scaffolds. This approach provides precise control over spatial and elastic coupling between motors. Cooperative interactions between monomeric kinesin-1 motors attached to protein scaffolds enhance hydrolysis activity and microtubule gliding velocity. However, these interactions are not influenced by changes in the elastic properties of the scaffold, distinguishing multimotor transport from that powered by unorganized monomeric motors. These results highlight the role of supramolecular architecture in determining mechanisms of collective transport.
Researchers Grow Bone Cells On Carbon Nanotubes
Excerpts: Researchers at the University of California, Riverside have shown, for the first time, that bone cells can grow and proliferate on a scaffold of carbon nanotubes. Bone crystal growth on carbon nanotube substrate Because carbon nanotubes are not biodegradable, they behave like an inert matrix on which cells can proliferate and deposit new...
Archaeology: Dates Revise Easter Island History, Science
Excerpts: When Dutch explorers landed on a remote Pacific island a few days after Easter Day 1722, they found eerie carvings of huge stone statues, a barren landscape, and natives with dwindling supplies of food and wood. Ever since, Easter Island, now known as Rapa Nui, has been considered a textbook example of a once-thriving culture that doomed itself by destroying its own fragile habitat.
Predator Learning Favours Mimicry Of A Less-Toxic Model In Poison Frogs, Nature
Excerpts: Batesian mimicry - resemblance of a toxic model by an edible mimic - depends on deceiving predators. Mimetic advantage is considered to be dependent on frequency because an increase in mimic abundance leads to breakdown of the warning signal. Where multiple toxic species are available, batesian polymorphism4 is predicted that is, mimics diversify to match sympatric models.
Evolutionary Biology: Speciation Standing In Place, Science
Excerpts: It's not often that one witnesses speciation in action, but some birdwatchers in Africa may be having that privilege. Michael Sorenson, an evolutionary ecologist at Boston University, and Robert Payne of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, have monitored African indigobirds at a field site in Cameroon for the past decade. The opportunistic birds lay their eggs in the nests of different species of finches. The newborn indigobirds then look and act as if they belong there, and as adults, incorporate the twills and whistles of their foster parents into their own mating calls.
Laonastes And The "Lazarus Effect" In Recent Mammals, Science
Excerpts: The living Laotian rodent Laonastes aenigmamus, first described in early 2005, has been interpreted as the sole member of the new family Laonastidae on the basis of its distinctive morphology and apparent phylogenetic isolation from other living rodents. Here we show that Laonastes is actually a surviving member of the otherwise extinct rodent family Diatomyidae, known from early Oligocene to late Miocene sites in Pakistan, India, Thailand, China, and Japan. Laonastes is a particularly striking example of the "Lazarus effect" in Recent mammals,...
Atmospheric Science: Fungi, Weathering, And The Emergence Of Animals, Science
Excerpts: As any high-school biology text will explain, eukaryotes have separate nuclei and other organelles and thus possess a more complex level of cellular organization than the simpler prokaryotic archaea and bacteria. Eukayotes form a large group that include some algae, protists, fungi, plants, and animals. We also know that the origin of animals followed the appearance of their eukaryotic ancestors by more than a billion years.
The Dual Functions Of Sight - Perception And Action - Demonstrated For First Time, Innovations-report
Excerpts: The dissociation in the visual system between two separate functions - one that enables us to identify objects and the other to interact with them - has been clearly demonstrated for the first time in healthy humans by researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. (...) This dissociation between action and perception suggests the existence of two separate visual streams However, despite the wide research triggered by this theoretical concept, it had not been proved in subjects in whom both streams are functioning normally. (...)
How To Grow A Bigger Brain, ScienceDaily
Excerpts: Hatchery-reared steelhead trout show increased growth of some parts of the brain when small stones are scattered on the bottom of their tank, according to a new study by researchers at UC Davis. The brains of those young fish were closer to those of salmon reared in the wild, and the fish also showed behavior closer to wild than to hatchery-reared fish. "There's an obvious difference between the hatchery and the wild fish. (...) A simple change affected brain growth in a large-scale way." (...)

Nonequilibrium Phase Transition in the Coevolution of Networks and Opinions, arXiv
Excerpt: Models of the convergence of opinion in social systems have been the subject of a considerable amount of recent attention in the physics literature. These models divide into two classes, those in which individuals form their beliefs based on the opinions of their neighbors in a social network of personal acquaintances, and those in which, conversely, network connections form between individuals of similar beliefs. While both of these processes can give rise to realistic levels of agreement between acquaintances, practical experience suggests that opinion formation in the real world is not a result of one process or the other, but a combination of the two. (...)
Using Hypermedia For Learning Complex Concepts In Chemistry, Edu. & Info. Tech.
Excerpts: This paper reports the results of a qualitative study on the process of learning complex concepts in chemistry by four students as they worked with FLiPS (Flexible Learning in the Periodic System), a cognitive flexibility multi-media hypertext for learning about the periodic system of elements. A wide range of probes (think-alouds; navigation logs; observational notes, interviews; pre- and post-tests; epistemic beliefs survey; and background questionnaire) produced a rich data set for analysis. This data was analyzed to construct rich narrative case- and cross-case narratives of the participants' process of working and learning in this complex hypertext environment. (...)
How To Test Your Competitive Market Strategy, marketingprofs.com
Excerpts: ¡§One of the hottest areas in technology and business process today is around predictive analytics, which is all about helping companies to determine their next move and stay one step ahead of the competition. One way to analyze a competitor's strategic intent and migration path is to assess its expansion plans into new market segments and offering sets¡K Although time-to-market is important, it doesn't mean doing things haphazardly or without some analysis. Often, however, many companies do get stuck in an 'analysis-paralysis' loop and don't take action until it's too late. As Jeffrey Pfeiffer [of Stanford University's School of Business] wrote in Business 2.0, 'enlightened trial and error [often] outperforms the planning of flawless intellects.' Sometimes the application of speed initiatives means dipping a 'toe' in the market to see whether you'll get burned (...).
Excerpts: "Advanced tools like computer simulations can significantly increase developers' problem-solving capacity as well as their productivity, enabling them to address categories of problems that would otherwise be impossible to tackle¡KFurthermore, state-of-the-art tools can enhance the communication and interaction among communities of developers, even those who are 'distributed' in time and space. In short, new development tools (particularly those that exploit information technology) hold the promise of being faster, better and cheaper¡KBut that enthusiasm should be tempered: New tools must first be integrated into a system that's already in place.
Excerpts: You've heard managers say they'll heap riches on those who do a good job. Ignore their words; watch their actions. Who do they really reward? Why? Mostly, we reward those who meet our needs, first and foremost. If you know what your managers really want, you can meet their needs while meeting the needs of the business. The late Harvard psychology professor David McClelland had an easy framework you can use. McClelland said motivation comes in three flavors: power, affiliation, and achievement.
Complex Challenges: Global Terrorist Network
Can Network Theory Thwart Terrorists?, NY Times
Recent debates about the National Security Agency's warrantless-eavesdropping program have produced two very different pictures of the operation. Whereas administration officials describe a carefully aimed "terrorist surveillance program," press reports depict a pervasive electronic net ensnaring thousands of innocent people and few actual terrorists. Could it be that both the administration and its critics are right? One way to reconcile these divergent accounts - and explain the administration's decision not to seek warrants for the surveillance - is to examine a new conceptual paradigm that is changing how America's spies pursue terrorists: network theory.
Computer Rendering by Sergi Valverde and Ricard V. Sol?/ICREA/Complex Systems Lab A Pattern Language Network relationships in a digital circuit (top) and a television circuit (bottom).
Excerpt: In the application of new technologies that address the terrorism problem, an objective is to ensure that the technology does not cause more problems than it solves. Potential new technologies, including convergences of genomics, robotics, information technology, and nanotechnology, might rapidly develop. As with any technological advance, each of these offers a mixture of benefits and risks.(...)
