emergent technologies

emergentec develops products and solutions governed by a proprietary conceptual fundament derived from biological computing principles: dynamical hierarchies of functors - a constructor of emergent properties. Sounds theoretical? – no, emergence is the consequence of omnipresent connectedness: higher order function from collective behavior.

We thrive on optimizing higher order function exposed by given object-in-context systems (reverse engineering in natural as well as man-made artifacts), and configure de novo higher order function scenarios in technical designs. We apprehend, tailor and develop higher order function in context-aware object ensembles.


Objects in context/interaction (be it humans, technical devices, or as combination in cyber-physical ecosystems) eventually develop organizational structure enabling higher order function. Such upward causal effects are frequently perceived as “unexpected” or “surprising”, and in downward causality affect peculiarities of individual objects, groups of objects, and of the entire object system. Still, higher order function grounds in deterministic object-in-context dynamics.

For an observer (human, technical sensor) emergence of higher order function may display as beneficial or detrimental scenario. In consequence, emergent properties open up most relevant application cases: a) identifying optimal means of interference with given object-in-context systems for re-directing dynamics toward beneficial behavior and b) designing object-in-context systems de novo for seeking added value in emergent capabilities.

reverse engineering

Varieties of natural systems, but also certain man-made artifacts present as interacting objects, embed organizational structure grounded in object context, and display higher order function. For selected instances big data have become available allowing object and interaction annotation / parameterization. Such basis enables system simulation (causality matters!) for diagnosis and prognosis of emergent observables, as well as design of appropriate external interference (together with prediction of system response).

technical designs

emergence offers a wide range of most relevant higher order function – stability/robustness/smart response to external interference, collaboration, synergism, coherence, graceful degradation, implicit optimization of target functionality, and many more. Cyber-physical ecosystems, with the Internet of Things as representative proxy, hold all prerequisites for becoming emergence-enabled: truly SMART technical devices with adopted controller functionality in connected ensembles, in de-central operation following implicit control.
