Panel Overview

Speakers at this panel will be:
  • Professor Lindell Bromham - Research School of Biology
  • Dr Shayne Flint - ANU College of Engineering & Computer Science

Complex behaviour is not complicated. However, simple rules can lead to very complex behaviour. We’ll cover topics such as emergence, evolution, chaos, feedback, networks and game theory.
