The Complex Systems group at IN3 (CoSIN3) develops research towards the discovery of underlying mechanisms in complex networked systems. Such research comes both with a fundamental and an applied emphasis, pivoting mostly (but not exclusively) on two pillars:
This UOC research group is part of the SGR research group "Artificial Intelligence for Human Well-being - Complex Systems at IN3”, under reference "22021 SGR 01367".
Urban science looks at the urban system as a whole – intertwined layers of personal interaction, infrastructure networks (communication, transport, energy), land use, air quality, etc. To this end, it uses the tools of complex systems and big data to address interdisciplinary challenges, whether in a theoretical (urban dynamics, traffic) or applied approach (management of public space, environment, etc.).
One of the important roles in the field of complex systems is the development of new methods and models, without them initially belonging to one or the other field of application. In this line of research, the group spends time on basic science (in contrast to the other two lines, which are more applied).
