Hi... sorry, I seem to be having severe writer's block against cranking out new lectures. It's not that I don't love you folks anymore - I do, and I'm having some interesting conversations here. It's just something about figuring out what to do lecture about next, and how to do it. Writing is always a mind game. I'm pretty good at writing a lot, but sometimes I really have to fight myself.
I almost overcame my resistance today, but I had to write a blog article about the work I'm doing with Metron on the Complex Adaptive System Composition and Design Environment project, to help convince the people at DARPA that we're doing good work, and that seems to have sucked out today's supply of energy.
I will try again tomorrow morning.
Anyway, here is that blog article:
It's about some new work John Foley and are doing... a continuation of the earlier work described here:
Part 1. CASCADE: the Complex Adaptive System Composition and Design Environment.
Part 2. Metron’s software for system design.
Part 3. Operads: the basic idea.
Part 4. Network operads: an easy example.
Part 5. Algebras of network operads: some easy examples.
Part 6. Network models.
Part 7. Step-by-step compositional design and tasking using commitment networks.
There, that should give you something to read about applied category theory until tomorrow!
