Description: Artificial life scientists are taking inanimate materials such as computer software and robots and making them behave just like living organisms. In the process they are discovering much about what drives evolution and just what it means to say that something is alive.

Virtual Organisms presents a comprehensive survey of ALife research. Through interviews with leading developers of artificial life and through his own compelling research, Ward shows:
-- the origins of ALife research -- where biology and technology converge
-- who is developing what kinds of artificial life around the world today
-- shocking examples of just how far this research has come
-- scientific and ethical implications of artificial life research

In an accessible, entertaining manner, this book reveals an unexplored avenue in predicting what the future of artificial life holds, and whether new forms of ALife may be evolving beyond their designers' control.
