While science cannot tell us how we should be, it can help us to understand how things are, and what the likely consequences of our policies will be. In a series of lectures, Bryson will fi rst describe and then demonstrate how simulation can be used to contribute to science, and how science can help to understand the tradeoffs of sociality, and its alternatives. She will illustrate the technique and make recommendations on policy for intelligent technology. Code for most of the simulations will be made available to students using NetLogo, the standard agent-based modelling platform which is available for most operating systems. More informations:
