Collective Behavior: From Cells to Societies: by The National Academies Keck Futures Initiative

By The National Academies Keck Futures Initiative

Collective Behavior is the precis of the 2014 nationwide Academies Keck Futures Initiative convention on Collective habit. individuals have been divided into fourteen interdisciplinary learn groups. The groups spent 9 hours over days exploring assorted demanding situations on the interface of technological know-how, engineering, and drugs. The composition of the groups was once deliberately different, to motivate the iteration of recent methods by way of combining a number varieties of contributions. The groups integrated researchers from technological know-how, engineering, and drugs, in addition to representatives from inner most and public investment firms, universities, companies, journals, and the technological know-how media. Researchers represented a variety of event - from postdoc to these good proven of their careers - from numerous disciplines that incorporated technology and engineering, medication, physics, biology, economics, and behavioral technology. The groups had to tackle the problem of speaking and dealing jointly from a range of craftsmanship and views as they tried to resolve a classy, interdisciplinary challenge in a comparatively couple of minutes. This document highlights the shows of the development and comprises the workforce experiences and pre-meeting materials.
