  title={Organic computing: on the feasibility of controlled emergence},
  author={Christian M{\"u}ller-Schloer},
This paper gives an introduction to the new research area of Organic Computing and shows chances, opportunities and problems currently tackled by researchers. First the visions that lead to this new research area are discussed briefly. It is shown that the notion of emergence, a central phenomenon in Organic Compting, is a typical bottom-up effect with the interesting property of generating order from randomness. The classical design, however, is a top-down process. This apparent contradiction… CONTINUE READING
