Biologically Inspired Computer Networks

TNRTB Archive – Retained for reference information

A team of computer network designers has drawn inspiration from the design inherent in biological systems. A biological system’s ability to survive relies critically on its ability to respond to changes in environment, even when this adaptability means suboptimal resource usage in a particular environment. Drawing insight from how a select bacterium responds to change, the team of computer experts devised a networking scheme that operated much more robustly in noisy environments where various network nodes crashed. Such human-designed systems increasingly resemble biological systems that supposedly arose by chance. RTB’s creation model argues that a better match to the data involves a supernatural Creator who designed the biological systems.
