Short Biographical Note
The cooperation with ENEA follows from my more general interest in the nature and consequences of human decisions in the presence of existing or plausible social, environmental and technological threats. In particular, my work in the FIM department (the ENEA's Project: Governo e della Sicurezza delle Grandi Reti Tecnologiche and the national Italian CRESCO-SOC-COG sub-project) relies on the research focused on the systemic modeling which could enable to model formally the relation between risk management and the applicability of the Precautionary Principle (PP), in particular from the point of view of normative (legal, ethical) constrains. The presented approach requires the application of a generic model of abstract intelligent agent as an individual or group decision-maker.
The systemic socio-cognitive engineering perspective enables to assemble my previous experiences related to safety, normative and decisional aspects in: law, ethics and advanced technologies, and other insufficiently explored, yet high-risk domains of human activity.
- By the way, in the modern, global and knowledge society, a conscious modeling and computational formalization of the properties and usability of PP, may also become an inevitable top application of Precautionary Principle.
