How social simulation could help social science deal with context
Bruce Edmonds is interested in far too many things for his own good. Currently this includes: the social aspects of informal value exchange; simulating the social processes of science; bridging the qualitative-quantitative worlds; the social complexity of immigration and diversity; social and socially-situated intelligence; measures and characterisations of complexity; evolutionary processes; nature and application of context in cognitive and AI domains; social simulation; philosophy of science (particularly modelling); and the application of social processes/structures to computational systems.
Bruce is the director of the Centre for Policy Modelling and a research profrssor at Manchester Metropolitan University Business School. He started his academic career with a BA in mathematics at Oxford and BA(Hons) in mathematics holds a PhD in Philosophy from Manchester Metropolitan University.
