About this book

Introduction

The essence of natural computing is aesthetics; for example, in cooking, one of the most common forms of natural computation, the decision to add salt, and how much, is based on the aesthetics of taste. Because touch perception is instinctively related to a sense of beauty, the aesthetics of tactile sense are considered as algorithms by using the Tactile Score, which encodes tactile sensation. This book will appeal not only to researchers of natural computing or aesthetics, but also those working in ergonomic design, haptic-Kansei engineering, philosophy, design and art.
