TLDR
The memetic-based selfish gene algorithm (MA + SG) is a mixed model that applies multiple learning procedures to explore the synergy of different cultural transmission rules in the evolutionary process and showed that the GA and the MA maintained long periods without the evolution of the best-fitted individual/solutions.

Evolution and Human Activity
Socio-biology has become popular with Wilson and Dawkins. How to theorize human evolution and selfishness? One must recognize the frequent occurrence of war in human civilization. Hobbes and SpinozaExpand
A Case Study in Belief Surveillance, Sentiment Analysis, and Identification of Informational Targets for E-Cigarettes Interventions
To illuminate understanding of how social media can be leveraged to glean insights into public health issues such as e-cigarette use, we use a social media analytics and research testbed (SMART)Expand
Memeing to Learning: Exploring Meaning-Making in a Language-Learning Chat Group
Meaning-making in a new era increasingly defined by digital communication is a complicated ensemble of both verbal and non-verbal modes. Following this trend of conveying information multimodally,Expand
Viral Ice Buckets: A Memetic Perspective on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge’s Diffusion
TLDR
This paper contributes to research on social learning, cultural evolution, and social contagion by shedding light on endogenous as well as exogenous properties that may have influenced the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge’s diffusion. Expand
Genome size in arthropods; different roles of phylogeny, habitat and life history in insects and crustaceans
TLDR
The striking difference in genome sizes both between and within these two major groups of arthropods are illustrated, and it is illustrated that while living in the cold with low developmental rates may promote large genomes in marine crustaceans, there is a multitude of proximate and ultimate drivers of genome size.

Navigating Cognitive Innovation
This paper revisits the concept of Cognitive Innovation with the aim of helping newcomers appreciate its (intended) demarcating purpose and relevance to the wider literature on cognition andExpand
Stability-based sorting: The forgotten process behind (not only) biological evolution
TLDR
SBS offers a new explanation for numerous evolutionary phenomena, including broad distribution and persistence of sexuality, altruistic behaviour, horizontal gene transfer, patterns of evolutionary stasis, planetary homeostasis, increasing ecosystem resistance to disturbances, and the universal decline of disparity in the evolution of metazoan lineages.
