The article addresses the phenomenon of emergence from a technical viewpoint. A technical system exhibits emergence when it has certain kinds of properties or qualities that are irreducible in the sense that they are not traceable to the constituent parts of the system. In particular, we show how emergence in technical systems can be detected and measured gradually using techniques from the field of probability theory and information theory. To detect or measure emergence we observe the system… CONTINUE READING
