In this book, the major ideas behind Organic Computing are delineated, together with a sparse sample of computational projects undertaken in this new field. Biological metaphors include evolution, neural networks, gene-regulatory networks, networks of brain modules, hormone system, insect swarms, and ant colonies. Applications are as diverse as system design, optimization, artificial growth, task allocation, clustering, routing, face recognition, and sign language understanding.2 The Organic Future of Information Technology 2 Christoph von der Malsburg1, 2 1 Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, ... influences by adapting control parameters so as to direct the ontogenetic process of self-organization and by organizing sample material. 2.1 Introduction We are all expecting great things to happen in information technology. ... given the current traffic pattern a updated minute by minute in the light of the movements of all the other cars with navigation systemsanbsp;...
