Emergic Network (EN)

Emergic Network ExampleThe Emergic Network (or EN) is an “artificial neural” network architecture that abandons traditional neural oversimplifications and facilitates an Emergic Approach to design that harnesses emergence by explicitly encoding the interactions among multiple flows of information.

Leibovitz (2012) Modelling visual processing via emergence (CSBBCS)Note: that while an Emergic Network unit can correspond to an actual neuron, the Emergic Network is not a network of neurons, and each unit can correspond to an arbitrary domain of analysis, as low as quantum mechanics if desired, up to social groupings. That is why “neural” is in quotes. Indeed a single unit is Turing complete and could simulate an entire artificial neural network.

The Emergic Network architecture, is described and housed within Wikimergic.
