Complexity and Robustness: How Biology Ecology and Technology Balance Tradeoffs in an Uncertain World

Do complex systems exhibit fundamental properties? This talk looks at tradeoffs between robustness and fragility that occur in biological, ecological, and technological systems that are driven by design, evolution, or other sorting processes to high-performance states which are also tolerant to uncertainty in the environment and components.
