H erbert A. Simon, winner of the 1978 Nobel Prize in Economics, died on 9 February at the age of 84. He was Richard King Mellon Professor of Computer Science and Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University. In an era when universities assiduously preserve the names of their new buildings for generous donors, the new Computer Science Building at Carnegie Mellon University is instead named for Simon and another renowned computer scientist, Allen Newell. The hallmark of Simon's remarkable career is… 
Herbert A. Simon
In the early years of operations research (OR), the line between OR and mathematical economics was often blurred. Important and influential contributions to OR were being made by mathematical

The work of Herbert A. Simon has drawn increasing attention from modern scholars who argue that Simon's work changed during the Cold War. This is due to the fact that Simon seemingly changed the
Revisiting Herbert Simon's “Science of Design”
Herbert A. Simon’s The Sciences of the Artificial has long been considered a seminal text for design theorists and researchers anxious to establish both a scientific status for design and the most
Human and Machine Learning
TLDR
It is argued that the modern machine learning algorithms, although impressive in terms of their performance, do not necessarily shed enough light on human learning and take us further away from Simon’s lifelong quest to understand the mechanics of actual human behaviour.

Anthropogenic reaction parameters--the missing link between chemical intuition and the available chemical space.
TLDR
It is argued that the present anthropogenic boundaries can be expanded by a more conscious exploration of "off-road" chemistry that would also extend the intuitive knowledge of trained chemists.
Checking Simulations: Detecting and Avoiding Errors and Artefacts
TLDR
This chapter establishes a general framework that summarises the process of designing, implementing, and using agent-based models and proposes several activities that can be conducted to detect each type of error and artefact.
