The best metrics for identifying self-organisation

Self-organisation is one of the key properties of complex systems yet automated tools to identify it have yet to be applied to systems other than toy models such as the Game of Life. Lachlan’s work is looking at implementing system complexity, Chan’s interaction metric, limited bandwidth recognition, de-centralised emergence detection and multi-scale Shannon entropy. His experiments will look at identifying which are the best metrics for various systems.
