About the topic
We live in a highly connected world and are surrounded by a large diversity of complex systems. Think of organisms, ecosystems, cities, societies, and so on. All complex systems are characterised by bottom-up emergent properties (including tipping points, resilience versus robustness). How can we better understand 'emergence', and can we make use of it?
