The concept of time pervades everything that we know about the physical and biological universe. However, adaptive phenomena cannot be trivially reduced to the simple timescale of physics and chemistry. 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 […]

Humans still struggle to engineer complex systems. Our position is that the engineering premise is fatally flawed when it comes to complexity and that we need a new paradigm. This week explores the ideas needed to inform this paradigm shift. Existing biological interventions offer some clues regarding necessary elements for such a framework. Like neuroprosthetics and […]

Sandboxes to Think & Play With

Railyard Plaza 1612 Alcaldesa Street, Santa Fe, NM

Biophysicist Shawn Douglas and designer Chaim Gingold discuss their inspirations and strategies for building computational tools that introduce new ways to play and think.
