Computational Technosphere and Cellular Engineering
The basic engineering problem is to build useful systems from given materials and with given tools. Here we explore this problem in the computational technosphere of computers, smartphones, networks and other information processing and communication devices created by people. The emphasis is on construction of different kinds of information processing automata by means of cellular automata. We call this engineering problem cellular engineering. Various types and levels of computing systems and models are considered in the context of cellular engineering.
