The Beauty of Complexity

PRESENTED ON JUL 31, 2015
IN ASHEVILLE @ VOL 8

"It is very obvious how natural selection can create diversity, but it's not very obvious how it can create complexity."

Andrew Hart is a software developer with a degree in Chemistry. In his presentation for PechaKucha Night Asheville: "The Art of Science," Andrew describes Stephen Wolfram's computational system of cellular automata and the model that they provide for understanding how complexity can arise in nature from a very basic set of rules.
