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.
...A whirlwind history, richer even than its subtitle suggests. John Doyle and Marie Csete Nature "...Forbes [is] an expert guide to the hottest research in a potentially revolutionary area of technology." Gilbert Taylor Booklist "Though the text is clearly written, it offers a lot of technical information. Recommended..." Susan B. Hagloch Library Journal
