Systemic computation: A model of interacting systems with natural characteristics.
International Journal of Parallel, Emergent and Distributed Systems
103 - 121.
Natural systems provide unique examples of computation in a form very different from contemporary computer architectures. Biology also demonstrates capabilities such as adaptation, self-repair and self-organisation that are becoming increasingly desirable for our technology. To address these issues a new computer model and architecture with natural characteristics is presented. Systemic computation is Turing Complete; it is designed to support biological algorithms such as neural networks, evolutionary algorithms and models of development, and shares the desirable capabilities of biology not found in conventional architectures. Systemic computation may also be implemented using natural systems, enabling the potential for future computational analysis and control of biology.
