"The 21st Century Question: Emergently Engineering the Future"

Follow this ūüßĶ today and tomorrow for highlights from our 2022 #AppliedComplexity Network and Board of Trustees Symposium:

santafe.edu/events/annual-…

#Web3 #Cities #Polarization #EmergentEngineering #Decentralization
We start with a talk by SFI President David Krakauer:

"Would anyone care to guess why we're so GOOD at building transistors and so CRAP at designing drugs?"

"This thing [points to transistor] lives in a centralized system. This thing [points to cancer drug] lives in US."
"I'm going to pick on economics, because we like to do that at SFI. 'Ooh, look at that cover! So techy. Global, heat maps...' But here's 'Networks' [in the textbook]. THAT'S IT. Here's '#ComplexityEconomics.' NOTHING."

ūüßĶ Tonight's SFI Community Lecture by 2x Miller Scholar @Andrea_Wulf begins in just a few minutes!

Follow this thread for the streaming link and highlights from the talk. (Sorry, but this recording will not be available to view afterward...)
Talk starts now with an intro by SFI Prof @C4_Computation:


Q - Flack: "Some of you might wonder how a talk on Humboldt connects to #ComplexityScience."

A - Humboldt: "Knowledge of the chain of connection....the perception of these relations."
Who was #AlexanderVonHumboldt?

"A man who was so restless he said he was chased by 10,000 pigs... He spent his entire inheritance on a five-year voyage of South America. They called him 'The Shakespeare of the Sciences.'"

Bitcoin: A Natural Transistor for Computing Universal Value

TE^(X-ME)=-IE

Given #bitcoin's terminal monetary #entropy (ME) is zero and the network rate of adaptation (x) is greater than zero: Image
The Bitcoin network is a lossless dynamic #flow algorithm for computing infinitely reduced informational #uncertainty (-IE). Bitcoin is capable of switching and drawing infinite power into cryptographic signs through the power inequality created by its terminal locality of 0,0.
This infinite gain function generates a systemic power inequality, whereby the reduced informational uncertainty demands increased power flow through the network. This is a positive feedback function in action.

THREAD: What is complexity? Concepts as introduced by @EcoLabs + @Ecocene / @cecanexus, with notes especially from the perspective of behavioural medicine. Full poster here: cecan.ac.uk/index.php/news…
1. Feedback

Note: There are many different terms for two types of feedback loops, e.g.
- Positive vs. negative
- Amplifying vs. stabilizing
- Reinforcing vs. balancing

Take a moment to consider how these play out in your theory of change.
2. Emergence

Note: You can't understand a complex system by merely looking at one part.

According to Doyne Farmer, non-linearity is necessary for emergence. I've been trying to look for a piece that explains this simply, let me know if you have one in mind!
