                                                              Complex situations emerge from simple rules. Animals are observed presenting complex behaviours, seemingly with no purpose or goal, this is a simple act of play, an act of creation. Inspired by the power of play to encourage emergent behaviour scientists are now designing Artificial Intelligence’s to learn about themselves and the world through “Play”. Providing insights into future scenarios the emergent behaviours and scenarios show that the power of play to create unexpected outcomes has. As we move into and create the 4th industrial revolution this understanding is crucial as the Internet of Things expands, systems become more autonomous and the need for the digital and the human world to play together well increases.
