Artificial Life

'Christopher G. Langton Christopher G. Langton

"Art" + "Life" = Artificial Life: Life made by Man rather than by Nature. Our technological capabilities have brought us to the point where we are on the verge of creating "living" artifacts. The field of Artificial Life is devoted to studying the scientific, technological, artistic, philosophical, and social implications of such an accomplishment.
