Dr Jeremy Horne is President-emeritus of the Southwest Area Division of the American Association for the Advancement of Science: AAAS. He currently the Chief Executive Officer of the Inventors Assistance League, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping independent inventors bring their creations to fruition. He is doing research and writing in the areas of Logic as the language of innate order in the universe, which is an ongoing 40 year project.
Dr Horne taught many courses in political science and technology, delivered many presentations on the philosophy of scientific methods for the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and Quantum Mind conferences, has been reviewer for various journals about the structure and process in binary space, consciousness studies, systems, theory, and philosophy of science, and Documentation Systems Developer, for White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. His most recent publication consists of two chapters on the philosophy of binary logic and artificial minds in Research and Applications in Global Supercomputing, released by IGI Global Press March 2015.
Dr. Horne is member of several professional organizations such as The American Association for the Advancement of Science, (AAAS, the World’s largest general scientific society) where he was President of its Southwest Area Division; Bioelectromagnetics Society; Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers where he is a voting member of Fiber Optic Technical Advisory Group.
Dr. Jeremy Horne earned his Ph. D. in Philosophy at University of Florida, Gainesville; His Master of Science in Political Science at New Haven, CT, and his Bachelor in Art in International Relation at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, He has been a member of the Phi Kappa Phi, National Academic Honor Society, and his name was included in several Who's Who directories.
Dr. Nagib Callaos is the founding president of the IIIS and the founding president of the Journal of Systemics, Cybernetics, and Informatics (JSCI). He is former Dean of Research and Development of the University Simon Bolivar and was the founding presidents of several organization on research, development, and technological innovation, e.g. The Foundation of Research and Development of the University Simon Bolivar, the founding president of the Venezuelan Fund for Technological Innovations (created by presidential decree), The founding president of the Venezuelan Association of Executives in Patents and Copyrights, etc. His main research and professional activities were in the area of systemic Methodologies of Information System Development, Group Decision Support Systems, and Action-Research mainly via Operations Research. He tutored more than 100 undergraduate and graduate theses and produced more than 100 research papers and reflection articles.
Related to the topic of this conversational session he has been continuously designing and redesigning (for about 35 years) more effective methodologies for information/informing system development, which effectiveness depends on including ethos, pathos, and logos to the in the context of a combination of systemic and traditional systematic analysis, design, and development methodologies. A synthesis of was he has achieved in this methodological area can be found at http://www.iiis.org/nagib-callaos/Toward-Systemic-Notion-of-Methodology-Practical-Consequences.pdf. With regards to the cybernetic relationships implicitly or explicitly should exist between episteme and techne, science and engineering, in the context of their industrial and societal insertion can be found at http://www.iiis.org/nagib-callaos/engineering-and-meta-engineering/engineering-and-metaengineering.pdf. This kind of insertion is necessary for the Ethos, Pathos and Logos of both episteme and techne as well as of both Science and Engineering/technology. This has strong consequences in the Ethos, Pathos and Logos, especially in Higher education.
The main purpose of this Conversational Participative Session is to support an open forum with regards to the Systemic-Cybernetic relationships between disciplinary research and inter-disciplinary communications and/research. The inputs to this conversational session are some questions related to the following affirmation:Is this affirmation right?
If not, Why?
If yes, Why?
What are the implicit and/or explicit relationships between Science and Engineering, real life problem solving, and technological innovations?
Do the following systemic-cybernetic relationships make any sense to you? If not why?
Is there any association between Academic Ethos, Pathos, and Logos and relating explicitly disciplinary research and interdisciplinary communication and research?
“Disciplinary Research is a Necessary Condition for Science Advancement but it is not a Sufficient Condition for Real Life Problem Solving and Technological Innovations, because in these cases Interdisciplinary Research and Communication are also Necessary”
Examples of the associated questions are the following (other questions might be raised by the audience):
Information, knowledge (epiteme) and opinion (doxa) sharing would provide input to the attendees of this session so they feel enabled to write reflection-based or practice-based position “invited papers”, which will be included in the post-conference edition of the conference proceedings with no additional costs for the respective authors. The best of these papers will also be published in the Journal with no additional cost for the respective author. These papers will be distinguished as “invited papers” or “position papers”.
