jra1 vision
JRA1 Vision
  • Building solid multidisciplinary foundations for Internet Sciences
    • From human behaviour related sciences (sociology, anthropology, economics, etc.)
    • ICT-based tools such as computer systems and network protocols
    • ‘hard’ sciences (e.g. mathematics, physics and biology)
  • Leverage on similarities and differences among different types of networks
    • expand the fundamental rules and principles applicable to large classes of networks, and enable predictions on network phenomena.
  • Follow a reflexive theoretical framework characterised by the interplay between questions of ontology and epistemologyand questions of social and economic value.
    • the first set of questions will address the challenge of communicating not just across different disciplines but across different epistemologies,
    • the second set of questions will draw from the field of economic anthropology to seek the right balance between the ‘base’ or ‘commons’ and the market in the context of the online knowledge economy and of the emerging cultural forms of the Future Internet.
  • Become a major focus point of the NoE, by interacting with other JRAs and providing some fundamental insight about their specific activities and in return getting major inputs nurturing the discussion on fundamental issues.

    • Several papers
  • Preparation of the Interdisciplinary Workshop on Decision Making and the Internet
  • Strong presence of JRA1 in summer school


decision making and the internet workshop
Decision Making and the Internet Workshop
  • Main scientific topics
    • Interdisciplinary analysis of decisions made on or over the Internet
      • How to decide in high-speed environments in which people are exposed to complex floods
        • Needs the formalisms of different disciplines (esp. economics, psychology, sociology
      • Cognitive framing
        • target for manipulation or surveillance.
    • The Internet as a shared (among disciplines) object of scientific enquiry and the implications for scientific and analytic decision making
      • Blind men and elephants or discipline-centredmodels metaphors (e.g. complex adaptive systems, epidemiological or ecological models, agent-based methods)
      • Applied sciences (e.g. medicine) vs pure sciences
      • Deciding when and how to pursue interdisciplinarity: does the interactive, shared and ‘unstovepiped’ nature of the Internet itself force a particular form of interdisciplinarity (e.g. like Systems Biology)?
      • Interrelation through the notion of design  
  • The workshop will be held in Oxford University on November 2014,
    • co-organized by Tamas David-Barrett (OXF), Panayotis Antoniadis (ETH), Jonathan Cave (UW), and Frances Griffiths (UW).
