technology is mystified to be complicated - it is actually not.
unruly systems THE PROBLEM OF THE BROCOLI BRAIN
cell engines - game life - slight change of(f) the rules rule engines where the rule engine rewrites the rules.
complex systems - handling complexity aka chaos - chaotic systems simple but unpredictable.
systems interconnected parts capable of arbitrary levels of complexity
mechanisms to harness unruly behaviour
2D surface of interconnected cells cell division mesh of cells rules when cells split if to add/remove/connect cell(s)
forces between connected cells bulge force (length of connection|potential connect) repulsion between unconnected cells
one rule cells / iterate the number of rules to 2 …
searching for the interesting stuff
aggregation may work for 3 or 4 parameters
but we do not think in 10 dimension (more than a billion samples)
- non linear behaviour
- edge of instability
- boundary between
express intention as human - computer delivers the interpretation example centaur chess
evolution is easily trapped into niches (computer exploits it)
machine learning how a particular system works (yet isn’t that a niche system again?) if yu use this for what one likes and what not - based on what you found already
find new stuff - far away from you have explored. recipes what and how to explore
