Interview: Michael Batty In Conversation With Jean Boulton

13 April 2021


This month Prof Michael Batty was interviewed by Dr Jean Boulton of the University of Bath as part of a series for the Institute of Physics on cities and social complexity. The interview can be viewed on YouTube.

The Complexity in the Social World series of interviews (and YouTube Playlist) follows on from the seminar we organised in March 2021. The aim of this series is to capture some of the foundational thinkers in conversation around how to apply complexity thinking to the social world, the world of managers, economists, change agents and societies. In this way, some of these foundational thinkers, many starting their work in the 1980s, are represented and their differing perspectives and different foci of application are available in one place.
