TopNewestThe idea of how local properties affects and influences global behavior always impresses me. It is amazing that just having a well defined set of rules that govern what is happening within a small area, could have a profound impact on the overall pattern that emerges.

We've seen examples of this in the Game of life and Starlings. It comes to me as no surprise that there can be a small set of local rules which helps led robots to build out amazing structures (without having the complete blueprint). Of course, the difficulty is that since humans do not operate with a 'hive mind', figuring out the important general rules can be much harder in practice.

Cool idea. But what has been proven?
