Chance Discovery in Emergent Systems

Ales Kubík

Chance discovery is a new scientific discipline that tries to cope with hardly predictable events with low or irregular occurrence or even with events that have no historic record. The research of emergence is a scientific field of complex systems study that tries to identify what emergence is, what types of emergence we recognize and how we can use it. In this contribution we try to give arguments how could work on emergence influence chance discovery fruitfully. We report on some resent results from the research of emergence and propose some ideas how they could be used in the chance discovery area.
