  David Cliff, form HP Lab in Bristol will be talking about Biologically
  Inspired Complex Adaptive Systems.

  Ant-hills, nervous systems, a Stock Exchange seething with
  self-interested traders: the world is full of systems of simple
  components interacting in simple ways, yet combining to give complex
  purposeful behaviour. Dave describes what these teach about building
  adaptive, robust, self-organising programs.
