Talked on “Complexity Model of Communication with Computer Images” @2016 Multimedia and Applications.

multimedia2016 I have talked on “Complexity Model of Communication with Computer Images” @2016 Multimedia and Applications, London, UK, August 2016.


Social and natural scientists have used the complexity paradigm to address issues of the complexity and dynamism of phenomena which hitherto in traditional approaches had been made invisible or had been regarded as aberrant – thereby adding to our explanatory and manipulative power (Eve, 1997). As Appadurai (1996) calls for a human version of complexity theory in order to further the theory of global cultural interactions, Takahashi (2009) has applied a non-linear, non-reductionist model to human communication, using the ethnographic method, which is a non-linear methodology.

There are numerous complex systems that exist among the micro and macro levels and each level is not discrete but rather is intra- and inter-connected and moreover dynamically interacts with the others. In this presentation, we will demonstrate the complex model of communication with some computer images to understand the diversity, dynamism and complexity of human communication in the global digital world.
