The ‘engineering’ and ‘adaptive’ approaches to system production are distinguished. It is argued that producing reliable self-organised software systems (SOSS) will necessarily involve considerable use of adaptive approaches. A class of apparently simple multi-agent systems is defined, which however has all the power of a Turing machine, and hence is beyond… CONTINUE READING
