Computerized information handling
Computers handling of information fascinates me. There is a big step between storing a paper to storing the information in it. Abstractions and reasons is only stored in the latter. I have looked into datastructures for storing the information and retrieve it by querying. How to build the datastructures from data have been the biggest problem. This have lead to an interest in parsing natural language. Relations in information (pdf) - 2000. Definitions - 1999. Handeling language in computers
Simulations of group interactions
To even do small scale simulations of groups of people one have to get to the core of reason. I believe that interaction is the most important part. Interaction between large groups minimize the fluctuations of individuals. It should therefore be possible to make a ruleset for interaction between groups with different ideas, beliefs and other attributes such as gender and physical appearance.
