Machine Learning and Modeling at CSS’2019

The science of complex systems provides the framework for understanding patterns of behavior, and their emergence, at multiple scales in social and other types of systems. The analytical toolsets provided by AI and Machine Learning are good to recognize and measure such patterns in the data. The combination of pattern recognition and generation mechanisms provides an opportunity to advance our understanding of the complexity of real systems. Ultimately, we could benefit from such complexity, rather than being endangered by it, design better technologies, decisions and strategies.

  • Show new ways to model complex and social systems by means of big data analysis, machine learning and AI.
  • Explore new ways to analyze the data, taking into account the complexity of underlying systems.
  • We would like to address how to formulate the right questions and retrieve the relevant information.

The opportunities available from big data and machine learning could solve challenging problems but we must analyze and interpret the data properly. Wrong assumptions and simplified views could separate modeling from reality. We expect to raise awareness about interventions in complex systems, the risk we face when societies become global, the opportunities that are created, and the role of complexity in data analytics.


2019 IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence

IEEE SSCI is a flagship annual international conference on computational intelligence sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, promoting all aspects of theory, algorithm design, applications and related emerging techniques. As a tradition, IEEE SSCI 2019 will co-locate a large number of exciting symposiums, each dedicated to a special topic within or related to computational intelligence, thereby providing a unique platform for promoting cross-fertilization and collaboration. IEEE SSCI 2019 will be featured by keynote speeches, panel discussions, oral presentations and poster sessions.

Xiamen, China December 6-9, 2019


Summer School in Computational and Theoretical Models in Neuroscience – Venice 09-14 September 2019

Approaches and techniques from Physics, Mathematics and Computational Science are increasingly becoming critical for understanding and modelling the brain, and also for designing and interpreting experiments. Modeling is an essential tool to cut through the vast complexity of neurobiological systems and their many interacting elements. 

 ConTaMiNEURO 2019 wants to convey central ideas, methods, and practices of modern computational neuroscience through a combination of lectures, tutorials, and seminars. During the course’s mornings, distinguished international faculty deliver lectures and seminars on selected topics in computational neuroscience (see below). For the remainder of the time, students work on research projects in teams of 3-4 people under close supervision of expert tutors and faculty. Research projects will include data analyses and the development of theories to explain experimental observations.
