Serge Robert: The Modeling of Environmental Systems and its cognitive foundations

Quoi:
Talk
Quand:
10:50 AM, mardi 25 mai 2021 EDT (1 heure 15 minutes)
Comment:
The presentation will first explain what a system is and will then give some basic notions about how to build a model of a system. It will insist on the role of entropy and negentropy in systems, describe the different components of the modeling of an environmental system and show how modeling has contributed to understand climate change. Finally, it will put the modeling of our environmental problems in an evolutionary perspective, address its cognitive foundations and get to the ethical dimensions it implies.
