Center for Social Complexity
Computational Social Science Program
Computational Social Science (CSS) uses models of cognition, mostly human cognition. Zero intelligence agents may be useful for some economic experiments and agents with preferences about their neighbors and moving randomly may demonstrate the emergence of segregation, but better models of individual’s cognition are needed to advance CSS. This talk will review the development of some of the models of cognition that have been used in the Center for Social Complexity, are being developed in the Center, and are being planned for the future.
