Abstract

This paper is a further attempt to apply Artificial Adaptive Systems to the analysis of the Mesopotamian urbanism. The ‘urban revolution’ in the Land of Sumer and Akkad has been considered as a complex natural and cultural phenomenon, but also the product of cognitive behavior that can be critically discussed both on the historiographical and analytical level. The complementary exploration of these two research’s levels leads to a strong diversifications of the Mesopotamian City representations and a progressive human attempt to trace them back to the simulation of cognitive complexity. AAS, as a specific set of Artificial Intelligence (AI) mathematical tools which express these emulative properties, are historiographically animated in the ‘connectionist’ reaction to ‘behaviorism’ and therefore are proposed here as an ‘analytical model’ for to explore the empirical complexity of the southern and northern Mesopotamian urbanism through non-linear programming (NLP) and dynamic algorithms
