Information flow framed in a computational and complexity context is relevant to the understanding of cognitive processes and awareness. In this paper, we begin with analyzing an information theory framework developed in recent years under Information and Integration Theory (IIT) based on interactions among partitions of cognitive information sets. We discuss the scope and limitations of these ideas, introducing a related measure for partitioning information sets. We introduce a set of… 

TrackMPNN: A Message Passing Graph Neural Architecture for Multi-Object Tracking

TLDR
A framework based on dynamic undirected graphs that represent the data association problem over multiple timesteps, and a message passing graph neural network that operates on these graphs to produce the desired likelihood for every association therein are created.

Integrated Information in Discrete Dynamical Systems: Motivation and Theoretical Framework

TLDR
A time- and state-dependent measure of integrated information, φ, which captures the repertoire of causal states available to a system as a whole and appears to be a useful metric to characterize the capacity of any physical system to integrate information.

Practical Measures of Integrated Information for Time-Series Data

TLDR
Two new measures are described, ΦE and ΦAR, that overcome limitations and are easy to apply to time-series data and carry implications for relations between integrated information, consciousness, and other neurocognitive processes.

Space-time as a causal set.

We propose that space-time at the smallest scales is in reality a causal set: a locally finite set of elements endowed with a partial order corresponding to the macroscopic relation that defines past

The universe as a process of unique events

TLDR
This work introduces a new kind of deterministic dynamics for a causal set in which new events are generated from pairs of progenitor events by a rule which is based on extremizing the distinctions between causal past sets of events.

Quantum energetic causal sets

We propose an approach to quantum theory based on the energetic causal sets, introduced in [1]. Fundamental processes are causal sets whose events carry momentum and energy, which are transmitted

Broadband Criticality of Human Brain Network Synchronization

TLDR
It is suggested that human brain functional systems exist in an endogenous state of dynamical criticality, characterized by a greater than random probability of both prolonged periods of phase-locking and occurrence of large rapid changes in the state of global synchronization, analogous to the neuronal “avalanches” previously described in cellular systems.

Emergent Consciousness: From the Early Universe to Our Mind

In a previous paper (gr-qc/9907063) we described the early inflationary universe in terms of quantum information. In this paper, we analize those results in more detail, and we stress the fact that

Towards An Integrative Theory Of Consciousness: Part 1 (Neurobiological And Cognitive Models)

TLDR
The present article looks at the theories regarding this complex phenomenon, especially the ones that neurobiology, cognitive neuroscience and cognitive psychology have to offer, along with the various theories posited in this area.
