Bionic City's curator insight, January 16, 2:06 PM

We are experiencing an unprecedented era in the history of urbanisation. How we manage the pace of urban growth will be one of the defining challenges of the 21st Century. How can sensor data, digital simulation, automated fabrication, augmented reality and synthetic biology create buildings and future cities that are more adaptive, regenerative, and alive?


Speakers: 

David Benjamin, Founding Principal, The Living; Melissa Sterry, Design Scientist & Futurist, Bionic City; Neil Spiller, Dean, School of Architecture, Design & Construction at University of Greenwich; Claudia Pasquero and Marco Poletto, Founders, ecoLogicStudio.

The Single Theory That Could Explain Emergence, Organisation And The Origin of Life

The Single Theory That Could Explain Emergence, Organisation And The Origin of Life | arslog | Scoop.it

Biochemists have long imagined that autocatalytic sets can explain the origin of life. Could it be that the same idea--the general theory of autocatalytic sets--can help explain the origin of life, the nature of emergence and provide a mathematical foundation for organisation in economics?
