Phil 10.3.18

7:00 – 5:30 ASRC MKT

  • Finished At Home in the Universe. Really good. I’ll work on writing up notes this evening. The Kindle clippings feature is awesome
  • The stampeding robots paper is up on ArXiv: Disrupting the Coming Robot Stampedes: Designing Resilient Information Ecologies
  • Dopamine modulates novelty seeking behavior during decision making.
  • Need to finish Antonio’s paper, but my sense at this point is to add our work as a discussion of edge conditions that come up in the discussion section?
    • Done. Sent a letter discussing NIST RCS
  • Need to write up the fitness landscape thoughts. One axis is distance to model which is has a decay radius from each agent. Another axis is the price of an item(with future discounting?). Another axis is cost by agent to acquire the item. Cluster behavior emerges from local agents trying to find the best model and acquire the most value? There is also some kind of explicit connection between individuals that needs to be handled (a tanker and a plane have a client-server relationship that requires them to move in a coordinated way)
    • There is also information that is within the agents, and information that is in the environment. There may be other types of information as well.
  • Get Matt rolling on the whitepaper? – done!
  • Watson backend to A2P?
  • Kibitzed Aaron on how to access style sheets
  • Got about halfway through speaking notes on Army BAA
