Programming the Emergence in Morphogenetically Architected Complex Systems

Franck Varenne, Pierre Chaigneau, Jean Petitot, René Doursat
2015 Acta Biotheoretica  
We propose to call them morphogenetically architected complex systems (MACS).  ...  While taking the emergence of properties seriously, the notion of MACS enables at the same time the design (or "metadesign") of operational means that allow controlling and even, paradoxically, programming  ...  The reason might be that bioinspired disciplines, such as gene-inspired evolutionary computation, ant-inspired swarm intelligence, and neuron-inspired machine learning, needed to establish themselves upon  ...
