Book about automatons: Artificial Life, or Biology Meets Computer Science (“Vie artificielle, où la biologie rencontre l´informatique”).
Author of this book about automatons: Jean-Philippe Renard.
Summary of this book about automatons: Life: state of that which is not inert.
Artificial life: domain dedicated to exploring the preceding definition.
This formula humorously illustrates the object of this book: a mysterious field that includes computer scientists, philosophers and biologists. The objective, to better understand what life is by researching and trying to reproduce its general governing principles. It also seeks to transpose living mechanisms at the heart of algorithms and specific artifacts (biomimetics) with a precision that is often mind-blowing. This book invites you on a fascinating voyage through the core of this subject. You will discover the virtual universe of cellular automatons and “programmable matter,” as well as ant colonies, a group of basilosaures, or evolving robots and other purely algorithmic creatures.
Book of 408 pages with some 185 illustrations. Written in the French language.
