Mutation: The Science of Survival

Mutation: The Science of Survival | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it
Monster mutants lurk in the myths of many cultures, and we’re fascinated yet fearful of nature’s mutants. But mutants are closer to home than we think. Often invisible, mutations are happening all around us, in every living thing.

Why Model? Joshua M. Epstein

Why Model? Joshua M. Epstein | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

This lecture treats some enduring misconceptions about modeling. One of these is that the goal is always prediction. The lecture distinguishes between explanation and prediction as modeling goals, and offers sixteen reasons other than prediction to build a model. It also challenges the common assumption that scientific theories arise from and 'summarize' data, when often, theories precede and guide data collection; without theory, in other words, it is not clear what data to collect. Among other things, it also argues that the modeling enterprise enforces habits of mind essential to freedom. It is based on the author's 2008 Bastille Day keynote address to the Second World Congress on Social Simulation, George Mason University, and earlier addresses at the Institute of Medicine, the University of Michigan, and the Santa Fe Institute.

Instructional design models and theories: Information Processing Theory

Instructional design models and theories: Information Processing Theory | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

Throughout much of the 1950s psychologists involved in the Information Processing movement began to view the brain as a neural computer that processes information with extraordinary efficiency and excellent performance in problem solving and critical thinking, through a process increasingly enhanced over time.

The idea of Information Processing lies within Cognitive Psychology - I highly encourage you to check Cognitive Load Theory and Instructional Design - and as a theory combines multiple theoretical perspectives that mainly seek to explain human learning as the development of networked memory structures.

A BRIEF GUIDE TO THE IDEAS AND ARTEFACTS OF COMPUTATIONAL ARTIFICIAL LIFE
Alan Dorin, Animaland, 2014
This guide provides broad coverage of computational Artificial Life, a field encompassing the theories and discoveries underpinning the invention and study of technology-based living systems. It is targetted at students of all ages who are new to Artificial Life or are hoping to gain a broad understanding of its themes.
The book focusses specifically on Artificial Life realised in computer software. Topics include:
• pre-history of Artificial Life
• artificial chemistry
• artificial cells
• organism development
• locomotion
• group behaviour
• evolution
• ecosystem simulation

Biological Bits includes animations and interactive software for experimentation with key processes. Simulations are included to allow exploration of cellular automata, developmental models, group behaviour and ecosystem simulation to aid in illustrating the text. The book can be read cover-to-cover as a general introduction to Artificial Life, or it can serve as a textbook for university or advanced high-school courses.

Why Programming Teaches So Much More Than Technical Skills | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

Though it Skills used for programming could also be used for a wide range of careers, such as constructing meteorological simulations, making financial predictions, or creating personalized online learning curricula.

Pedro Fernandes's insight:

Though it is never "too late" , early contact with programming is clearly the way to open more possibilities for learners. I reckon that it is the contact with the clear and perfect logic of computer technology that makes the biggest difference.
