Lowe R. (2013) Designing for Emergent Ultrastable Behaviour in Complex Artificial Systems – The Quest for Minimizing Heteronomous Constraints. Constructivist Foundations 9(1): 105–107. Fulltext at
Open peer commentary on the article “Homeostats for the 21st Century? Simulating Ashby Simulating the Brain” by Stefano Franchi. Upshot: The target article has addressed core concepts of Ashby’s generalized homeostasis thesis as well as its relevance to building complex artificial systems. In this commentary, I discuss Ashby-inspired approaches to designing for ultrastable behaviour in robots and the extent to which complex adaptive behaviour can be underdetermined by heteronomous constraints.
