Surveys the emerging field of biologically inspired computing, looking at some of the most impressive and influential examples. Forbes identifies three strains of biologically inspired computing: the use of biology as a metaphor or inspiration for the development of algorithms; the construction of information processing systems that use biological materials or are modeled on biological processes, or both; and the effort to understand how biological organisms "compute", or process information.
