For the past few decades I have been working to put the study of(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); biological information processing[as modeled in amorphous processes, not cellular automata nor neural networks] on as firm a mathematical foundation as formal mathematical computation theory [eg., recursion theory, automata theory, logic, etc]. Consider skin, every eukaryotic cell has the power of an early PC and the ability to communicate with neighbors [via gap junctions]. As an organ, skin represents an enormous computational network [as an organ, skin processes about 2% as much information per kg*sec as the brain it seems]. Of course, skin and natural networks in general are asynchronous. This fall, I am focused on simple examples of processes which work better with randomized asynchronous activity [better than serial or synchronous]. Discussion and additional examples would be very much appreciated.
