A little BRI:

Research 4:30 – 9:30

  • Continuing along the flocking line of thought, I’m wondering how similar a stampede is to a runaway echo chamber. In both cases, they work best if the ‘shared knowledge’ is simple and clear. In a stampede, the idea is reduced to its simplest base – run! Although there may have been a reason at the beginning, at some point the group runs because it is running. Stopping will get you trampled. The only way to escape a stampede is to peel away from the edges, but that may not b possible due to environmental constraints (e.g. walls). Once started, they are hard to stop and ‘have a mind of their own’.
  • Added to the lit review folder for P&C considered harmful
  • Working on CI 2017 poster, making it more visual. Took a wrong turn incorporating too much new data from the HCIC poster. Cleaning and simplifying.

Research about one hour

  • Broke apart the assets for the CI 2017 poster V2. What about the relationships from the P&C considered harmful outline? That’s not in the abstract…

Research (2 hours)

  • I am thinking about flocking as a form of group decision making under uncertainty., kind of like the Multi-armed bandit problem parallelized. So in this context:
  • Explore: Assumption of unknown information
  • Flocking: Assumption of incomplete information
  • Exploit: Assumption of complete information

7:00 – 8:00 Research

  • Converted poster to PDF and test printed. And then noticed some things. And did it again. And then noticed some things. And did it again. And then noticed some things. And did it again. I think I’m done now. Need to send off this evening.

9:00 – 4:00 BRI

  • Sprint planning
