New Scientist Planet Science: CREATURES FROM PRIMORDIAL: “Even though the circuit consists of only a small number of basic components, the researcher, Adrian Thompson, does not know how it works. He can’t ask the designer because there wasn’t one. Instead, the circuit evolved from a “primordial soup” of silicon components guided by the principles of genetic variation and survival of the fittest.” Wow! This kind of technology could completely alter the landscape of computing.
