Welcome to an exciting exploration of emergence!
I am looking forward to spend an interesting semester together with you. We will explore many phenomena and mechanisms of emergence and how emergent system behaviours can be built. We explore simulations with agent-based techniques, swarm intelligence systems, and investigate other nature-inspired algorithmic approaches.
I hope we are all going to have fun, learn a lot, and take away some excitement about decentralized systems and their applications in computer science and other disciplines.
