Title: Network Dynamics and Pinning Control

Abstract: The realm of collective dynamics within complex networks has unveiled fascinating phenomena such as flocking, schooling, and swarming, which arise from the interplay of collections among nodes. Through certain evolutionary mechanisms, local and unordered interactions could lead to global, coordinated behaviors. This fascinating field not only deepens our understanding of natural processes but also holds potential for diverse practical engineering scenarios. In the era of AI 2.0, research areas spanning from the origins of complex networks to multi-agent systems and network collective intelligence remain significant and continue to exhibit their unique charms and functionalities.
In this talk, we will introduce various network dynamics and explore effective control schemes, with a special focus on pinning control. From both theory and application aspects, we will give our research on the following three topics: theory and methods of collective intelligence, intelligent learning, and collaborative control, and efficient collective intelligence-inspired optimization algorithms. Then, we will discuss three basic questions for pinning control: (1) the identification of optimal nodes for control implementation, (2) the design of appropriate pinning control gains, and (3) the optimization of the number of pinned nodes. Lastly, future discussions for networks with different time and space scales, distributed AI technology, and applications will also be elaborated.
