*CANCELED* Time Design Week

In adaptive systems, aging is explicitly viewed as a consequence of information gain (adaptation) and information loss (entropy). The Santa Fe Institute’s research, along with the discussions during this week of the InterPlanetary Festival, explores both living and non-living systems, including connected subsystems that operate concurrently at different scales and rates.
