Molecular Approach to Informal Computing
Zauner, K.-P. and Conrad, M. (2001) Molecular Approach to Informal Computing. Soft Computing, 5, 39-44.
Cells and organisms are natural molecular computers. The problem domains effectively addressed by these systems are complementary to, and in fundamental respects far exceed, the domains addressable by current computing devices. The vast majority of information processing problems do not have sufficiently compact formal specifications to fall within the reach of programmable machines. Our working hypothesis is that the unique properties of molecular materials are the key to extending information processing technology beyond the narrow limits of formal computing.
