The Planetary Brain

Part of the The Frontiers Collection book series (FRONTCOLL)


Coming at the end of this book dedicated to Computing in High Energy Physics, this last chapter may seem disconnected from the main subject. Indeed it cannot be denied that there is a difference in style and focus from the preceding material, which may arise from my professional experience, which is different from that of the other authors.
