Formalization & Creativity
Klaus Wassermann’s main focus is on the theory and practice of associativity and complexity in networked systems or more particle-based systems, which is accompanied by the investigation of machine-based epistemology (usually-and misleading-called AI or machine-learning). This comprises anything from agent-based systems, self-organizing maps to reaction-diffusion systems, or, in abstract theoretical terms, probabilism, population and semiotics. These approaches are bundled in the Laboratory for NooSynthesis). His work is influenced by the fact that he studied biology and behavioral sciences and has also worked in the software industry as software architect and product manager for several years. With regard to architecture, this sets the stage for issues like “inter/action”, immersiveness and interpretation, evolution and development, automation and autonomy, contextualized as a practice well-backed by theory.
