  • Event date: 1st March 2022
  • Speaker: (Georgia Tech)
  • Location: Online - see email.

Event details

Life is a multifarious bundle of distinct physical phenomena that are distinctive, but not unique to, living things. Self-replication, energy harvesting, and predictive sensing are three such phenomena, and each can be given a clear physical definition. In this talk, we will report recent progress in understanding what physical conditions are required for the spontaneous emergence of these various lifelike behaviors from assemblages of simple, interacting components.
