Plenary / Panel
in englischer Sprache

Die Verstrickung in komplexen Systemen ist eine Grundbedingung modernen Lebens. Welche wissenschaftlichen Ansätze gibt es, robustere Vorhersagen über Entwicklungen in komplexen, dynamischen Systemen zu machen? Und welche Anwendungsmöglichkeiten gibt es für die Steuerung komplexer Planungs- und Produktionsprozesse?

Professor of Complex Systems, Santa Fe Institute, Santa Fe Abstract
I will argue, through a few examples, that an emphasis on connecting many aspects of complex and large problems is often a necessary condition to making them simpler and more tractable in practice. Research in complex systems that follows these strategies, supported by increasingly available data and new information technologies, is allowing us to understand better, for example, how different cities, neighborhoods or even people express similar dynamics in different places, but also how they differ, leading to more successful but also culturally more integrated solutions.
This suggests new forms of (urban) planning and policy that emphasize the coordination of information and agency at different levels of organization, from citizens to civic and economic organizations and governments. I will give examples of these processes both in developed and developing parts of the world from my work. Ultimately, complex systems' research on human societies emphasizes new possibilities fir civic participation and for more responsive and effective government.
