Emergence is an important new concept in artificial intelligence, information theory, digital technology, economics, climate studies, material science and biometric engineering.
It is a development which is set to inform not only the construction of buildings, but also the composition of new materials. As a new science, coupled with material and technological innovations, it is set to enter architecture into a new phase of transition.
This book presents an account of related developments in artificial intelligence and evolutionary computation, and shows how these developments are being incorporated into new architectures.
