ABSTRACT
<p>Emergent collectives are networks of information or function nodes with minimal central control. People can easily add nodes to the network and often have a social incentive to do so. The author argues that such collectives are an important feature of today's economy and that enterprises could benefit from simulating such collectives to problem solve and predict potential disruptions.</p>
