Presentation Description

In this hands-on track, you’ll explore very simple systems to discover surprising emergent behaviours.

You’ll find dynamic systems that (under the wrong conditions) resonate, explode, jitter or simply die. We’ll look at the ways that these tiny systems produce such pathologies, how to trigger them, how to observe them, and how you might be able to regulate them in the complex systems we build.
