9780262621120: Artificial Life: An Overview (Complex Adaptive Systems)

Artificial life, a field that seeks to increase the role of synthesis in the study of biological phenomena, has great potential, both for unlocking the secrets of life and for raising a host of disturbing issues -- scientific and technical as well as philosophical and ethical. This book brings together a series of overview articles that appeared in the first three issues of the groundbreaking journal Artificial Life, along with a new introduction by Christopher Langton, Editor-in-Chief of Artificial Life, founder of the discipline, and Director of the Artificial Life Program at the Santa Fe Institute.

From the Back Cover:

Artificial Life is the study of synthetic systems that exhibit behaviors characteristic of natural living systems. It complements the traditional biological sciences concerned with the analysis of living organisms by attempting to synthesize lifelike behaviors within computers and other artificial media.

Review:

This college-level text focuses on the field of artificial life, providing articles which appeared in the journal of the same name and including a new introduction. Abstracts and keywords introduce each, with plenty of scholarly footnotes providing the necessary research information. -- Midwest Book Review
