Herbert Simon Lectures

 

    The "Herbert Simon Lectures" is established in memory of Herbert A. Simon, winner of many top-level awards including the Association for Computing Machinery's Turing Award (1975), the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics (1978), the National Medal of Science (1986), and theAmerican Psychological Association’s Award for Outstanding Lifetime Contributions to Psychology (1993). Being a lifelong scholar of human decision-making, Simon believed that economic research should start from the study of actual behavior rather than the convenient but unrealistic assumptions. He acted upon his belief by drawing materials from his own contributions to computer science and cognitive psychology so as to enrich the study of economics and management science. His inventions in economics, satisfying behavior and bounded rationality, were substantiated by making extensive use of the computer to simulate human thinking and to augment it with artificial intelligence. The interdisciplinary development of economics over the last two decades has been largely in line with the legacy of Herbert Simon.

Pursuing the purpose of promoting interdisciplinary study and research, the “Herbert Simon Lectures”, previously “Herbert Simon Series Seminar”, has invited more than 17 speakers in various disciplines including economics, psychology, computer sciences, physics, and so on. More prestigious speakers will be continuously invited in the future to benefit students and scholars not only in economics, but also in the general computational social sciences. 

赫伯賽門講座為紀念赫伯賽門而設立。赫伯 賽門是許多最高榮譽奬項之得獎人,包括美國計算機協會之圖靈獎(1975年) ,諾貝爾經濟學獎(1978年);(美國)國家科學獎章(1986年);和美國心理學協會的心理學傑出終身貢獻獎(1993年)。 作為一個終 身研究人類決策行為的學者,賽門認為,經濟研究應該研究人類的「實際行為」,而不是牽就方便,但不切實際的「假設」。賽門將其信念化成行動,從他所獻身的 計算機科學和認知心理學中汲取材料,以豐富經濟學和管理科學的學習。他在經濟學上有關「滿足行為」和「有限理性」的發明,已經由電腦的大量模擬人類思維所 證實,此類模擬更進而發展成「人工智慧」學門。過去二十年來,經濟學的跨領域發展,幾乎可謂是赫伯賽門的薪傳。

稟持著推廣跨領域學習和研究的宗旨,
赫伯賽門講座(前身為赫伯賽門系列研討會”),已邀請了 超過17位不同領域的講者,包括經濟學,心理學,計算科學,物理學等。未來將會持續邀請更多有聲望 之講者,以嘉惠經濟學以及廣泛的計算社會科學學界。
