Turing machines, cells and why both are designed

In a previous post (see here) I wrote: “necessary but not sufficient condition for a self-reproducing automaton is to be a computer”. Biological cells self-reproduce then for this reason work as computers. But “computer” is a very generic term (it means a device able to compute, calculate, process information, rules and instructions). Computer-science studies a Read More…

Metaprogramming and DNA

In informatics metaprogramming is a technique consisting in developing computer programs (sets of instructions) that output other programs. While simple programming means instructions generating data, metaprogramming means instructions generating instructions. In general the prefix “meta” means a thing/cause that stays at a higher semantic/ontological level than another thing/effect (in the case of metaprogramming we have Read More…
