Event description

Description

Agency is at the forefront of modern technologies. Both engineered and natural systems respond to stimuli from their environment, displaying complex adaptive behavior that depends both on the current environmental input stimuli and the transcript of their past encounters. Such agents process information from their environment, outputting the outcomes of this computation as actions -- this makes information theory a powerful tool to characterize and understand their behavior.

  • How much information must an agent retain to act in particular way?
  • Does this radically change when we allow the agents to think quantum mechanically?
  • What are the thermodynamic signatures of such effects?
  • How do such agents infer the consequences of their actions?
  • What domains do such agents naturally operate in? Can they power intelligent energy harvesters or find an optimal strategy when navigating a complex environment?
  • Can we develop experiments that probe such new paradigms?

Venue: Hotel Fort Canning, Singapore
