نبذة عن المقرر

Following historic human achievements in steam power, electricity, and digital information, Robotics is now considered by many to be the fourthindustrial revolution. This course explores robotics not simply as advanced technology, but as a new scientific discipline that can lead to a deeper understanding of human behavior.

The course begins with an explanation of what it means to simulate humans and societies , what potential advantages there may be, and the progress that has been madethus far.

The course follows this general introduction with specific simulations that reproduce human behavioral development ; exploring the relationship between the cognitive, motivational, and emotional aspects of behavior. These simulations also delve into the critical, nuanced concepts including: individual differences, language, thinking, social behavior, differences between men and women, the nature and role of family, possession and wealth, exchange of goods, the emergence of currency and organization for the production of goods, the economic and political role of the State, and historical phenomena.

The final part of the course investigates the social utility of simulations when they are translated into digital environments. This section utilizes a user-friendly and motivating interface that enables anyone tobetter understand the world in whichwe live.

Domenico Parisi
Domenico Parisi works at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the National Research Council (CNR) in Rome, where he deals with simulations of human behavior and human societies. He was director of the Institute from 1986 to 1994 and taught psychology in various Italian universities and at the University of California at Berkeley. He has published books in Italian and English and, recently, Future Robots: Towards a robotic science of human beings (Amsterdam, Benjamins). His main research interests are the development of simulation models of individual and social behaviors through neural networks, genetical algorithms and models of artificial life; their philosophical and cultural implications (with regards to the impact of technology on the human mind and the cultural and political evolution of societies) and their applications in the fields of education, entertainment and divulgation.
