Yesterday, two mails popped in notifying me of a couple of (quite) different articles of mine gone into print. The oldest is called ‘Agents without Agency’ and argues for a process understanding of agency (cognitively and ontologically) and the consequences for AI and robotics of such an approach (find it here here). I had great fun writing the paper together with Prof. Tom Ziemke and but I’m not sure it’s an equal blast to read. The topic was tangential to my PhD research and submitted back in 2003 when I was still a fullblood academic (in terms of self-understanding . The paper is part of the inaugural issue of the new Cognitive Semiotics journal (website underway).
The second was created recently together with Nicolai Peitersen; it’s in Danish and less abstarct. It’s titled ‘CSR 2.0′ and about the way Internet technologies and new social and economical models is reshaping Corporate Social Responsibility and how to deal with it for companies in the front line. Basically, it’s one long salespitch for Actics as any other consultancy report. Actics. It’s being published in the quarterly handbook ‘Social ansvarlighed‘ (Social responsibility) for CSR officers. I’m currently working on an extended version in English for publication later this year. Check out the Actics blog for more on this.
