In their book Natural Computing, Dennis Shasha and Cathy Lazere describe the calculations necessary for the analysis of protein folding, which is important in biological research and particularly in drug design. Time must be divided into very short intervals of around one femtosecond, which is a million billionth of a second, and for each interval, the interactions of all the atoms involved in the process must be calculated. Then do it again for the next femtosecond, and the next, and the next. It is sobering to think about what vast computational resources are necessary to even begin to simulate what tiny bits of nature do all the time. --David Foster"

In Natural Computing, Dennis Shasha and Cathy Lazere profile Mr. Shaw and 14 other scientists who are pushing computer science beyond traditional boundaries. In particular, the scientists are trespassing into the realms of biology and physics and attempting to create computer designs and functions that will imitate organic reality. --Jamie Hamilton"

The biographies, by Dennis Shasha and Cathy Lazere, are bite-size--no more than six pages or so--and the technical material is segregated in sidebars so that the reader doesn't get bogged down unless he or she wants to.

[A] breezy overview of current trends in computer design and software.... Amateur tech enthusiasts should be absorbed by this knowledgeable but welcoming look at the bleeding edge of computing.

Dennis Shasha and Cathy Lazere draw upon interviews with 15 leading scientists working in disparate fields to explore the outer reaches of computing. They expected to write a book about a future world dominated by thinking machines, but instead found that the common vision to have emerged across all of these fields is that "the future of computing is a synthesis with nature...".. Reading the book, I came away with the comforting thought that the mindset of future computers will seem far less alien to my kids than to me.--Thomas P.M. Barnett

There are many possible approaches to natural computing--computing inspired by nature--and Lazere and Shasha's new book gives a good overview of all of them... by telling the stories of some of the main players in the field.... even if you aren't a techie, the personal storytelling, which so nicely combines the technical focus of the book with the personal fascinations of the players, will still impress you with the natural computing field's main themes and challenges.... The authors also make the convincing case for parallel programming languages, such as K and APL, which seem indispensable when it comes to making effective use of the new generation of computer architectures.--Jan Van Den Bussche

[D]oes much to demystify what computer scientists do as well as reviewing the current state of research in the field. It's the sort of book that's perfect for a college student thinking about a career in computer science, or trying to understand which academic advisors to pick for his or her thesis.--Alexander Haislip, author of Essentials of Venture Capital

4.0 von 5 Sternen Thought-provoking 16. August 2010
Von J. Scott Shipman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Natural Computing is an interesting and thought-provoking amalgam of mini-essays/bio's of the people engaged in computing other than digital. The format is fast paced and engaging. The authors cover Adaptive Computing, Harnessing Lifestuff, and Physics and Speed. My favorite was the chapter on Nancy Leveson called, "It's the System Stupid." This chapter uses the Bhopal, India incident to illustrate the power of interaction in safety. On the tradition of root-cause analysis, "Leveson argues that the approach is simplistic and harmfull. Often the chain starts at the most convenient root cause, and usually only one root cause is identified. In addition, systemic factors that allowed the even to occur are often ignored." This mini-discourse in system safety is worth the very reasonable price of the book.

The authors frequently reference their subject's work, which allows the reader to dig deeper than the topical treatment presented.

Very well done and recommended for anyone curious about the new frontiers of computing.
4.0 von 5 Sternen the book gives some good examples of using nature inspired algorithms in different fields 29. Dezember 2014

the book gives some good examples of using nature inspired algorithms in different fields. It is a pretty good introduction for readers. However, if you would like to study deeper in natural computing, especially the technical or algorithms then you will need to read other more technical documents.

2.0 von 5 Sternen The title is wrong 10. Juni 2013
Von oscar valdez - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book should be called: Small biographies of 15 persons who work on natural computing. If you like to read about scientists, then it is okay.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding text for people looking for inspiration 15. August 2011
Von Amir - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I am ordinary graduate student over whelmed by everdy procedure of my research and almost forget the main dreams that brought me this way! I am not in the best school or never been in any best group but I have been always looking to create and make stuff. I am reading alot and many times heard that I am top of many stuff. A friend of mine from newsweek magazine suggested me to read this book and I absolutely enjoyed reading every section of it. for someone in control/automation/safety world with practical experiences in developing AI systems and evolutionary algorithms I am amazed that how this book could still drawn me in its stories. it clearly explain the goal of each project and how it formed in terms of peoples dreams/goal or project/history of the problem. it gives you some real understanding of how things are really are ( like crunching numbers algorithm in Quant companies) and how big they are in a very simple language.
you may enjoy the contemporary history of many companies, project or programing philosophies or the story of people who are not from the best schools or always the best of their decks but still contributed amazingly into this world. It can be a great gift to first year college students who are thinking to choose between CS or engineering or making their own way in this world!!
