The Stages of The Unicist Research Institute

The Beginning

The unicist research group began in 1976 as an unincorporated association created by Peter Belohlavek, based on the unicist approach to complex adaptive environments. It was focused on developing solutions to manage the evolution of complex adaptive environments. It has to be considered that the approach to complexity was not an issue in those times. The Santa Fe Institute was founded in 1984 and the New England Complex Systems Institute in 1996.

The discovery that complex adaptive environments are constituted by objects and processes and have no variables, drove to the development of a complexity science research method that is homologous to medical research, where real applications (clinical trials) drive the research process.

The Expansion of the Research

The integration of The Unicist Research Institute with M&T, to research solutions and develop scenarios, and with ASOU, dealing with education in the field of adaptive systems management, together with the participation of volunteers, allowed building a scientific approach that expanded the boundaries of systemic sciences, providing a structural approach to complex adaptive environments.

This research was led by Peter Belohlavek, who was then the president of M&T and of the Adam Smith Open University (ASOU) and is now the president of The Unicist Research Institute. It was focused on the research and the development of solutions for complex adaptive environments in the individual, institutional and social fields. Access list of clients

The unicist research methodology in the field of complex adaptive environments, which have open boundaries, requires developing real applications, where artificial experiences are not valid, that is why M&T developed the applications in the business field and ASOU the applications that dealt with individual and social behavior and education.

The Present and the Future

The latest stages of this research drove to the development of unicist artificial intelligence that emulates, on the one hand, the intelligence of nature and, on the other hand, human intelligence and allowed building cognitive systems and expert systems in the field of social and institutional evolution.

The Unicist Approach used at The Unicist Research Institute became disseminated in the world by the creation of The Unicist School that has more than 100,000 followers in 56 countries. Access
