  1. 1. Complex methods of inquiry: structuring uncertainty

    Author : PETER BEDNAR; Institutionen för informatik; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; information system; Contextual Analysis; Contextual Dependencies; Systems Approaches; Systems Thinking; Organizational change; Complex adaptive systems; Uncertainty management; Organizational Emergence; Change Management; Organizational Learning; Human Activity Systems;

    Abstract : Organizational problem spaces can be viewed as complex, uncertain and ambiguous. They can also be understood as open problem spaces. As such, any engagement with them, and any effort to intervene in order to pursue desirable change, cannot be assumed to be just a matter of ‘complicatedness’. READ MORE

  2. 2. Innovation in Complex Adaptive Systems

    Author : Petter Törnberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Society; Transitions; Complexity; Innovation Society; Wicked Systems; Technical change; EvoDevo; Innovation; Exaptive Bootstrapping; Generative Entrenchment; Niche Construction Theory;

    Abstract : Our society is increasingly beset by a range of interrelated crises - with the financial crisis, the energy crisis, and the global warming crisis as leading examples - forming a "meta-crisis" with its roots in processes deeply entrenched in society (Lane et al., 2011), and emanating from large-scale complex adaptive systems so strongly interlinked that they are hard to even define and delimit.

  3. 3. Stability of Adaptive Distributed Real-TimeSystems with Dynamic Resource Management

    Author : Sergiu Rafiliu; Petru Eles; Zebo Peng; Luigi Palopoli; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; real-time systems; distributed embedded systems; control systems; scheduling; adaptive system;

    Abstract : Today's embedded distributed real-time systems, are exposed to large variations in resource usage due to complex software applications, sophisticated hardware platforms, and the impact of their run-time environment. As eciency becomes more important, the applications running on these systems are extended with on-line resource managers whose job is to adapt the system in the face of such variations. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cognitive and Self-Adaptive SoCs with Self-Healing Run-Time-Reconfigurable RecoBlocks

    Author : Byron Navas; Ingo Sander; Johnny Öberg; Michael Hübner; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER;

    Abstract : In contrast to classical Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), partial and run-time reconfigurable (RTR) FPGAs can selectively reconfigure partitions of its hardware almost immediately while it is still powered and operative. In this way, RTR FPGAs combine the flexibility of software with the high efficiency of hardware. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Complex Adaptive System Approach on Logistics - Implications of adopting a complexity perspective

    Author : Fredrik Nilsson; Förpackningslogistik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; logistics systems; logistics; paradigm; epistemology; complex adaptive systems; complexity theory;

    Abstract : The quest of developing the logistics discipline, with a more theoretical foundation, is something several authors have emphasized and called for. Today one could argue that most of the research on logistics has a strong connection to the positivistic paradigm where there is a great emphasis on prediction, rationality and control in the solutions produced.
