Using self-modeling networks to model dynamics, adaptation, and control of internal mental models. For video presentations for many of the chapters, see https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtJH8O7BvdycENlCsAEraVybqz1I6T9sd.
Chapter
For a video presentation, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRUzrkf1mW4. When people interact, their behaviour tends to become synchronised, a mutual coordination process that fosters short-term adaptations, like increased affiliation, and long-term adaptations, like increased bonding. This paper addresses for the first time how such short-term a...
Conference Paper
Interpersonal synchrony is associated with better interpersonal affiliation. No matter how well-affiliated people are, interruptions or transitions in synchrony rebound to occur. One might intuitively expect that transitions in synchrony negatively affect affiliation or liking. Empirical evidence, however, suggests that time periods with interrupti...

Although there is much literature on organisational learning, mathematical formalisation and computational simulation of it is considered a very challenging topic with almost no literature addressing it in a principled manner. This book provides an overview of recent work on mathematical formalisation and computational simulation of organisational...
Conference Paper
This paper introduces a novel controlled adaptive mental causal network model addressing how dreams overnight can influence creativity in waking life. The network model depicts in a causal, dynamic, and generic manner which adaptive mental processes underlie the connection between dreams and creativity and is shown to be validated with the existing...
Chapter
This paper addresses formalisation and computational modelling of context-sensitive control over multilevel organisational learning and in particular the role of the leadership style in influencing feed forward learning flows. It addresses a realistic case study with focus on the role of managers for control of multilevel organisational learning. T...
Conference Paper
Joint Keynote Speech. Organisational learning emerges as a cyclic interplay of various mechanisms at different levels. To analyse and simulate organisational learning computationally, the self-modeling network modelling approach from AI provides a powerful means to address the complexity of the interaction of different mechanisms and the control ov...

Conference Paper
For a video presentation, see https://youtu.be/uWAg2WUi2r0. Transformative Organizational Change becomes more and more significant both practically and academically, especially in the context of organizational culture and learning. However computational modeling and a formalization of organizational change and learning processes are still largely...
Conference Paper
A video presentation can be found at hhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cto3OzVQbsY. Learning is an integral part of organizations. Therefore, as introduced by Kim [1], organizational learning has been coined as a key term, as it facilitates further development, both within individuals, amongst individuals, and as a result, within teams and organizat...
Conference Paper
This paper investigates computationally the following research hypotheses: (1) Higher flexibility and discretion in organizational culture results in better mistake management and thus better organizational learning, (2) Effective organizational learning requires a transformational leader to have both high social and formal status and consistency,...
Conference Paper
For a video on YouTube, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFMmHQgo8Rs. This research addresses the influence of leadership and communication on learning within an organisation by direct mutual interactions in dyads. This is done in combination with multilevel organizational learning as an alternative route, which includes feed forward and feedbac...
Conference Paper
This paper describes how the recently developed self-modeling network modeling approach for multilevel organisational learning has been tested on applicability for a real-world case of a project-based organisation. The modeling approach was able to successfully address this complex case by designing a third-order adaptive network model. Doing this,...
Conference Paper
This paper describes how second-order adaptive network models for mental processes can be used to model and support (shared) mental models for team performance and organizational learning. The paper illustrates on the one hand the value of adequate shared mental models for safe and efficient team and organizational performance. On the other hand, i...
Chapter
This study introduces a second-level adaptive temporal-causal decision model for deciding whether to keep or not to keep a baby. In this model, different actors and factors that influence the decision-making process have been incorporated based on literature. Hereby, the actors are responsible for the Hebbian learning component and make the model a...
Conference Paper
For a video presentation, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRfB0Pphi34. Interpersonal synchrony usually induces behavioural adaptivity concerning the interaction between people. Such behavioural adaptivity is assumed to be driven by some form of subjective internal synchrony detection. In contrast to objective synchrony detection by an external...

Conference Paper
In this paper, a second-order adaptive network model is introduced for presenting a user with content they like on a platform through a specific method. Simulation results have been performed with different scenarios for different starting values of the user and the platform. In all scenarios, the platform's method using its so-called fake state ca...

Conference Paper
Invited speech. For a video presentation on YouTube, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0hYoTIEo9E. Within the literature, many specific conceptual learning mechanisms have been identified that play a role in organisational learning. Organisational learning emerges as an interplay of them. To be able to develop computational models for organisati...

In this paper, equilibrium analysis for network models is addressed and applied in particular to a network model of multilevel organisational learning. Equilibrium analysis can take into account both properties of aggregation characteristics and properties of connectivity characteristics of a network. For aggregation characteristics, it is shown ho...
Conference Paper
Fear involves activating the fight-or-flight response in order to prevent harm from dangerous threats. However, dysregulation of chronic fear is harmful and can lead to disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder. Propranolol has been shown to reduce the fear response by reducing norepinephrine. This paper proposes a second-order adaptive netw...
