Organically Grown Architectures : Creating Decentralized , Autonomous Systems by Embryomorphic Engineering

  title={Organically Grown Architectures : Creating Decentralized , Autonomous Systems by Embryomorphic Engineering},
  author={Ren{\'e} Doursat},
Exploding growth in computational systems forces us to gradually replace rigid design and control with decentralization and autonomy. Information technologies will progress, instead, by“meta-designing” mechanisms of system selfassembly, self-regulation and evolution. Nature offers a great variety of efficient complex systems, in which numerous small elements form large-scale, adaptive patterns. The new engineering challenge is to recreate this self-organization and let it freely generate… CONTINUE READING
