The 2nd and 3rd of July 2012 saw the official launch of the Work Package 4 of the Tipping Points Project at Durham University. By all accounts it went very well. Lots of interesting presentations, excellent discussion and lots of good food. My own presentation of modelling audience behaviour (standing ovations) generated some good discussion, which was very helpful as the work is very much in the early stages of development. Next job is to publish it, probably as a model system for a tipping point system before developing it further for testing ideas around audience behaviour. Some great ideas about some experiments that could be done too.
I am a Senior Lecturer of Systems and Organisation in the School of Management, University of York. He is interested in the application of complex systems theory in organisations, and how organisational culture, memory, and knowledge can be theorised as an emergent property of the system itself. I am also interested in the role of technology including, AI and machine learning on organizational decision making.
