Thermodynamics or computation

Cells compute. In each cell in you right now most of the energy burn is going to translation. That is, in the ribosomes where your DNA basically is turned into protein. The ribosomes operate within two orders of magnitude of the thermodynamic optimum which makes them about 10 to the fifth times better than all […]

Mechanisms by which Life self-assembles

This is a transcript of a lecture given by Michael Levin. Applications are for general artificial intelligence and cognitive technologies. Is it possible that some of the limitations of current machine learning is because people have really been focusing on imitating brains and especially human brain architectures? What would happen if we stepped way back […]
