Beyond Emergence: Hybrid Architectures?

Agent based modelling plus? ... motivations and directions

Making agents that can explore/infer
Agents capable of exploring, inferring, creating expectations

The human brain as as an array of interacting agents, capable of induction, deduction and ... abduction? intentional choice? free will?

Perhaps not because of numbers of interacting agents but because of nature of interactions, bipartite architecture?

Can we make agents capable of "story telling", and hence of abduction, of creating things that go beyond what has been experienced, be creative? And get them to interact?

Can we both account for and influence culture?

Can such agents emerge in the absence of an architect/designer?
