Σkynet: A Novel Biologically Inspired Near Extinction Reconstruction Model

  • Conference paper
  • First Online:
XIV Mediterranean Conference on Medical and Biological Engineering and Computing 2016

Abstract

The present work aims to develop a fundamentally novel computational model for reconstructing complex software systems, following some massive internal failure or external infrastructure damage. The present model mimics the biological process of information transmission in terms of transcription and subsequent translation, introducing novel terms such as pre-code and computational RNA.
