Tonight I’ve published a suggestion / proposal for a new model for computing, based on how the cell works, so I’ve called it Cellular Computing.
SNS members will be reading about it within the hour. The idea is that we have nearly reached the end of the old linear/multi-linear model, with its one set of top-down instructions in numbered or ordered lines.
If you think about how the cell relates to internal and external change, and how its control systems function and integrate, you’ll see a brand new model for computing, with new questions, new controls, and new definitions of solutions.
Rather than study how the brain works, it might be smarter for computer architects to study how the cells of the brain (or any other organ) work.
