COMSC talk: measuring the ‘collective mind’ of the 15M movement’s network

I recently participated in the UOC/IN3 Communication & Civil Society seminar ‘Cultura digital, redes y política distribuida en la era de Internet. De la Primavera Global a la Net Democracy‘, presenting some of the results of the 15Mdata research group. I presented some measures characterizing self-organization processes in social networks behind some of the events promoted by the 15M movement in Spain. We used 1/f noise and multifractality analysis tools used in psychological experiments to characterize the ‘collective mind’ behind these processes.

You can check the slides and watch the stream video of the talk (both in Spanish).

Miguel Aguilera is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the IAS Research Center for Life, Mind and Society at the University of the Basque Country. He has been a visiting researcher at the Cognitive Science Program at Indiana University and the Ikegami Lab in the Department of General Systems Studies at the University of Tokyo, and a postdoctoral fellow at the University of the University of Zaragoza and the University of the Balearic Islands. His research focuses on autonomy in biological and social systems from an interdisciplinary perspective, integrating insights from cognitive science, theoretical neuroscience, computational modeling, adaptive behaviour, and complex systems. It combines nonlinear and dynamical models, evolutionary algorithms, and mathematical analysis from dynamical systems, network and information theory, to generate and understand situated and embodied models of agency in the realms of artificial life and evolutionary robotics, computational neuroscience, collective intelligence practices and socio-technical systems.
