Algorithms and Emergence

SarahMalayaSniezek's picture
I am not sure how to state what I want to say or what I am asking. While in class I began to recall a project I did in high school involving algorithms and patterns. I remember putting many algorithms together to for a picture. I did not know how algorithms and emergence were connected exactly, but after reading some information about there relationship at Network Narrative algorithms are said to be precise steps taken towards accomplishing a task. Well to my surprise they are very interlinked. I wanted to know what other people’s thoughts are on algorithms and emergence. Are they one in the same? Is this a type of emergence?

Hi Sarah, I don't know if we're thinking about the same thing, but check out my post. I talk briefly about genetic/evolutionary algorithms.
