Symposium P. Cognitive Relativity, Rationality and Clarity

Chair: Irina Ezhkova, International Institute of Applied Technologies, Brussels, Belgium

Call for papers

The CRRC principles provide a unified background for understanding, formalisation and support of different kinds of Systems of Communicating Emergent Contextual Systems. Despite the term “cognitive” the symposium is relevant to different environments where basic principles of self-organisation may help to understand and support different kinds of emergent and selforganising activities and infrastructures.

The principle of Cognitive Relativity recognises that there are different perspectives of observation of the same problem as well as of different problems by different actors, and that an observer (any actor, agent) can be placed into different points of observation with potentially different interests,  cognitive spaces and different accurate scaling and measurements. This principle provides an extreme sensitivity to different situations, contexts, actors and users and may help to aggregate the whole vision of a complex reality into a well described, predictable and multicontextual picture.

The principle of Cognitive Rationality recognises that there are different kinds of rationality which may rule behaviour and decision  making of different actors and that their different possible actions can be accurately modelled and well predicted on the same formal basis.  This principle provides a constructive background for modelling of harmonised behaviour of different multiple actors in a complex multicontextual and emergent environment. It provides the unified platform for global strategic planning as well as for different kinds of emergent behaviour.

The principle of Cognitive Clarity recognises that there are clear ways of approaching and organising a real complex environment which may be very beneficial for increased comprehension and self-organising activities of different actors (agents, human, cultures, media and technical environment). This principle can recognise the most constructive means of different kinds of communication and organisation and may be used to predict their possible life-cycles. Languages, cultures, metaphors, organisations, technological standards, scientific terms and models may be considered as useful results of clarifications.  The principle can help to recognise and predict different forms of emergent infrastructures, technologies and their possible ways of evolution.

These general self-organising principles can be used to understand, explore and harmonise different kinds of Emergent Opportunities and Emergent Architectures.
