#STU03 – Natalio Krasnogor: “To Boldly Go: Computer Science’s Quest to Make Living Matter Algorithms-Friendly”

tuesday, 22nd of November 2011, 5 pm GMT

Title: To Boldly Go: Computer Science’s Quest to Make Living Matter Algorithms-Friendly
Tweeter: Dr. Natalio Krasnogor, @NKrasnogor, Professor of Applied Interdisciplinary Computing, leads the “Interdisciplinary Computing and Complex Systems (ICOS)” research group at the University of Nottingham, UK. He works at the interface of Computer Science and the Natural Sciences, in particular, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. He is a current holder of a Leadership Fellowship by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (#EPSRC) and a Morris Belkin visiting professor at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel.
Description: While the world is at awe at the power, versatility and ubiquity of “apps”, a silent revolution is brewing. This revolution amalgamates chemistry and biology and lays at the heart of Computer Science’s quest to make living matter algorithms-Friendly. “Algorithmic Living Matter (#ALMA)” is likely to be one of the most disruptive technologies we have seen so far.
