Last night I started reading George Dyson’s new book, Analogia: The Emergence of Technology Beyond Programmable Control. I’ve already highlighted some choice quotes, like this one from the introduction:
Nature uses digital coding, embodied in strings of DNA, for the storage, replication, modification, and error correction of instructions conveyed from one generation to the next, but relies on analog coding and analog computing, embodied in brains and nervous systems, for real-time intelligence and control.
I’m intrigued to see where Dyson takes this…
