A revolutionary new computer based on the apparent chaos of nature can reprogram itself if it finds a fault
OUT of chaos, comes order. A computer that mimics the apparent randomness found in nature can instantly recover from crashes by repairing corrupted data.
Dubbed a "systemic" computer, the self-repairing machine now operating at University College London (UCL) could keep mission-critical systems working. For instance, it could allow drones to reprogram themselves to cope with combat damage, or help create more realistic models of the human brain.
Everyday computers are ill suited to modelling natural processes such as how neurons work or how bees swarm. This is because they plod along sequentially, executing one instruction at a time. "Nature isn't like that," says UCL computer scientist Peter Bentley. "Its processes are distributed, decentralised and probabilistic. And they are fault tolerant, able to heal themselves. A computer should be able to do that. ...
Le designer berlinois Marco Bagni, créateur d'une trilogie d'animations baptisée "Getting lost", "explore des concepts grisants, existentiels" comme le temps, l'espace ou la vie. Ses clips mettent en mouvement des infographies qui, derrière leurs formes dansantes, ne renvoient à aucun contenu ni information.
ONEQ/ BIO ONEQ was born in 1981 in Japan’s southeast Kyushu island.My work as an illustrator includes a variety of genre such as magazine artwork, DVD cover art, apparel and clothing art, and manga illustrations. My illustration might be defined as pop style with an underground flavor. I like to create simple images in my work. I start with a pencil and sketchbook and then use photoshop type programs to add color. I like orange and red tones the most.
