Rather, I propose more meaningful ways to address root causes of organizational ills using bio-logic instead of machine logic in identifying conditions that either foster or hinder positive emergent behavior.
The resulting relationships between parts (or behaviors) of the living system (muscle groups, nervous system, organs, etc.) then express life, the emergent behavior unique to a living system.
The idea that information is distributed among members of an organization and becomes useful to the organization only through structure is closely linked to the idea of emergent behavior. I extend Alchian's evolutionary argument to show that goal-seeking is an emergent property of the dynamic by which an organization comes into being and evolves.
Being in control of the actuation is a big step forward toward that goal." The National Science Foundation supported this work through a Science and Technology Center (Emergent Behavior of Integrated Cellular Systems) grant, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Georgia Institute of Technology and other partner institutions.

(5) Perhaps intellectual disabilities limit the potential for emergent behavior. Although equivalence classes certainly have been demonstrated in individuals with severe mental retardation, the number of such subjects studied so far is small relative to normally intelligent subjects, and it is not clear that this population is representative.
Rather, the world we find ourselves in is one where deliberate human activity, itself a complex network of functions, interacts with a highly complex planetary substrate to create unpredicted, often challenging, emergent behaviors, of which climate change is but one example.
They are also studying the use of Internet data streams, such as social media, to capture emergent behaviors during disease outbreaks to measure the potential impact of mitigation strategies.
The artist describes these works as apparatuses for cognitive training, what he calls a "neurological gym." One wants to return to them, to get under their skin, to trace the emergent behaviors of a system that parallels our own.
Relying on elementary activities of individuals, societies of these biological populations exhibit complex emergent behaviors.
