Misperception, communication and diversity

  title={Misperception, communication and diversity},
  author={Jin Akaishi and Takaya Arita},
It is commonly agreed upon that misperception is detrimental. However, misperception might have a beneficial effect from a collective viewpoint when individuals mis-percept incoming information that promotes a specific kind of behavior, which leads to an increase in diversity. First, this paper proposes our hypothesis regarding adaptive property of misperception based on the argument of the relationship between misperception and behavioral diversity, and the effects of communication on… 
Agent-based modeling for investigating adaptivity of misperception
Study of the adaptivity of misperception as a factor generating diversity will lead to new findings in cognitive science, memetics, and fundamental aspects of engineering.
An Evolutionary Benefit from Misperception in Foraging Behaviour
Adaptive pressures will drive the population to evolve a probability of misperception that is optimal for that environment, using an evolutionary artificial life simulation.
Spread of Misinformation
This paper would explore the ideas of memes which use the evolutionary biology approach as well as the pitfalls in using this picture, and focuses on the fidelity of information which affects the variation of memes.
The impact of communication and memory in hive-based foraging agents
The results of experiments examining the effect that environmental structure can have on the utility of communication and memory for hive-based agents are presented, finding that there are some environments in which they do not contribute substantially to the agents' ability to survive.
Diversity and Information Processing in Teams : A Combinative View
  • Business, Computer Science
  • 2006
It is concluded that complexity science as a structural (meta-)theory can help to reveal the circumstances under which team diversity in terms of differences in information processing can foster team performance.
A study on social diffusive impacts of a novel car-navigation-system sharing individual information in Urban traffic systems
A multi-agent simulation model to deal with urban traffic congestion problems involving automobiles embedded with several strategies of car navigation systems has been presented and illustrated that ST-pRIS has a moderate potential to be diffused in a society from the viewpoint of the evolutionary game theory.
Social Diffusive Impact Analysis Based on Evolutionary Computations for a Novel Car Navigation System Sharing Individual Information in Urban Traffic Systems
In this study, an experiment to establish a model for human-environment social systems, a multi-agent simulation model to deal with urban traffic congestion problems involving automobiles embedded
Diversity as a Knowledge Resource in Top Management Teams - A Framework for Agent-Based Modeling
The paper reveals and explains inconsistencies in cognitive diversity research regarding diversity effects on top management team information processing as a presumption for team performance and refers to limitations of empirical research designs and discusses different simulation approaches as alternative research methods.
Cognitive Diversity of Top Management Teams as a Competence-Based Driver of Innovation Capability: How to Decode Its Contribution Comprehensively
In order to gain and maintain innovation capability, organizations have to adapt their profiles and processes to perpetually changing environmental conditions. However, the resulting need for a high


Multi-agent Simulation Showing Adaptive Property of Misperception
Misperception is defined as wrong beliefs, which are generated when an individual receives or processes information. Misperception has been assumed to be harmful in general. However, misperception

It appears that what the agents in a multiple agent system believe is typically partial, often wrong and often inconsistent, but that this may not be damaging to the system as a whole. Beliefs which
MINIMEME: of life and death in the noosphere
It is shown that some ecological concepts can be applied to memes, as if they were some kind of animats, and how these concepts relate to the simulated animals.
Evolution of Linguistic Diversity in a Simple Communication System
It has been shown that the evolution of linguistic diversity in vocabulary sharing will support cooperative behavior in a population of agents and the possibility of using linguistic Diversity in the field of distributed AI and robotics is examined.
Evolution and the Theory of Games
It is beginning to become clear that a range of problems in evolution theory can most appropriately be attacked by a modification of the theory of games, a branch of mathematics first formulated by Von Neumann and Morgenstern in 1944 for the analysis of human conflicts.
The Meme Machine
Humans are extraordinary creatures, with the unique ability among animals to imitate and so copy from one another ideas, habits, skills, behaviours, inventions, songs, and stories. These are all
Inductive Reasoning and Bounded Rationality
The type of rationality we assume in economics--perfect, logical, deductive rationality--is extremely useful in generating solutions to theoretical problems. But it demands much of human
Book Review: Takaya Arita, Artificial Life: A Constructive Approach to the Origin/Evolution of Life, Society, and Language
It is helpful to categorize ALife researchers in Japan into three generations: the zero, first, and second generations, which include those who started to study ALife after the label was introduced due to Chris Langton’s pioneering and inspiring efforts.
The evolution of dialect diversity
Observations on dialect diversity have been recorded for thousands of years, including Old Testament stories and early writings and literature from around the globe. Language diversity remains the
Simulating the Evolution of Language
This volume provides a comprehensive survey of computational models and methodologies used for studying the origin and evolution of language and communication. With contributions from the most
