Designing self-organising emergence requires explicit support to design system-wide information flows and feedback loops in those flows. The problem-solving power of emergence mainly resides in the coordination between agents which needs exchange of inherently decentralised information through the system. Self-organisation is only possible when there are ongoing feedback loops in those flows. To avoid that engineers are overwhelmed with the details of decentralised coordination mechanisms such… CONTINUE READING
