This event, co-hosted by Boeing and the Santa Fe Institute, will explore how established theories of biological scaling formalized by James Brown and Geoffrey West apply to technological, social, ecological and cognitive systems. Understanding the fundamental relationship between the distribution of nodes and connectors of a system is important for formulating theories of growth in networks and eventually developing predictive models of network evolution. Time is allocated to discuss how this research can be used to help understand growth in complex networks relevant to businesses and organizations.
