Speaker:
Dr Ray Paton

Cost:
Free

Description:
The ways that bacteria behave has inspired developments in computing, leading to many and varied applications such as Grid Computing and Adaptive Computing, and evolutionary principles have been applied in areas such as Decision Support Systems.

Dr Ray Paton, a leading researcher in this field, will talk about these and more concerning the exchange of ideas between biology and computing.

This event will be of interest to anyone studying computing, or wanting to find out about emerging methods in computer science that have real-world application.
