I485 Bioinspired Computing

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): INFO-I 211 or CSCI-C 212.

Biological organisms cope with the demands of their environments using solutions quite unlike the traditional human-engineered approaches to problem solving. Biological systems tend to be adaptive, reactive, and distributed. Bio-inspired computing is a field devoted to tackling complex problems using computational methods modeled after design principles encountered in nature.
