University of Mexico’s Carlos Gershenson: Computers Are Telescopes With Which We Study Complex Systems
Bird migration, cell function, and human behavior: these are all systems that humans can analyze. By predicting and understanding systems, we have found cures to infections and created computers. But what can we do about truly complex systems that depend on hundreds of variables, such as cancer tumors? On March 26, Carlos Gershenson, a researcher at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), spoke about these matters to the students of ITMO University. ITMO.NEWS provides key highlights from Prof. Gershenson’s lecture “Computers as Telescopes for Complex Systems”.
ITMO University has recently hosted a series of lectures on Mathematical Models for Complex Systems by Marco Javarone, a professor from the University of Hertfordshire (UK). He spoke about complex networks, numerical modeling of complex systems, and machine learning with an emphasis on financial technologies and social networks. Most importantly, the professor explained theoretical knowledge can be successfully implemented in practical applications. ITMO.NEWS asked Mr. Javarone some questions about complex systems studies, and what qualities students should have to get a job in the field.
