Kindle read Digital Biology How Nature Is Transforming Our Technology and Our Lives author Peter J. Bentley – stoptheworldcup.co.uk
After the first few chapters really started to enjoy the book There is some really ood information in here paticularly on the ideas of using the immune system as a model for IT security and intruder detection However if you are familiar with basic biol. St creative thinkers working in computer science today As Peter J Bentley explains the next iant step in computing technology is already under way as computer scientists attempt to create digital universes that replicate the natural world Within these digital universes we will evolve solutions to problems construct digital Brains That Can Learn that can learn think and use immune systems to trap and destroy computer virusesThe biological world is the model for the next eneration of computer software By adapting the principles of biology computer scientists will make it possible for computers to function as the natural world does In practical terms this will mean that we will soon have smart devices such as houses that will keep the temperature

Ogy and computing you can skim the first few chaptersIn summary a Good Fun Introduction To fun introduction to and artificial life It isn t a heavy read and you won t learn enough to make practical use of the ideas expressed but it may well tempt you to learn elsewhere.

Never Visited Before Evenvisited before even we walk through the airport Miniature robots may even be incorporated into our bodies to monitor our health Digital Biology is also an exploration of biology itself from a new perspective We must understand how nature works in its most intimate detail before we can use these same biological processes inside our computers Already scientists engaged in this work have ained new insights into the elegant simplicity of the natural universeThis is a visionary book written in accessible nontechnical language that explains how cutting edge computer science will shape our world in the coming decade.
