Excerpt: There has been a long-standing debate – from Leibnitz to Lady Lovelace to the present – over whether purely computational devices are capable of fundamentally-creative, truly emergent behavior. This paper will discuss various kinds of devices capable of emergent behaviors and take up the question of whether we can by purely computational means amplify our capacities as observers and actors in the physical world.
