Introduction

To gain power in the information age is to win control over uncertainty. Precise accounting of contingency has become a central tenet, not only for fields of applied forecasting, but to the whole of experimental and aesthetic practice.

On March 22nd Avant.org and LEAP invited practitioners and scholars from the arts and sciences to examine the crucial role simulation plays in contemporary inductive thought and the shaping of our reality.
