Stigmergic epistemology, stigmergic cognition

Cognitive Systems Research Volume 9, Issues 1–2, March 2008, Pages 136-149. As improbable as this might sound there is a bit of Hayek, Oakeshott and Marx in here. complexitydispersed knowledgedistributed cognitionParticle Swarmstigmergic cognitionstigmergic epistemologyStigmergy

Stigmergy-based modeling to discover urban activity patterns from positioning data

New working paper freely available for download here. In this paper, we present an innovative approach based on stigmergy that aims to handle both complexity and dimensionality of these data, providing an analysis of urban crowds dynamics by exploiting taxi GPS data. complexitydispersed knowledgedistributed cognitionhuman-human stigmergysituated cognitionstigmergicstigmergic cognitionstigmergic epistemologyStigmergy
