Evolutionary architecture in the natural world

Submitted by

Talk Abstract:

Starting with a single cell, nature has ruthlessly iterated to produce to extremely complex systems and has developed solutions to many different problems that we talk about today:

  • Architecture of large-scale systems
  • Communication at a distance
  • Eventual consistency
  • Security
  • Fault tolerance
  • Multivariate testing strategies
  • Adaptive algorithms for learning
  • and much much more...

I will explore how nature has solved these issues, the parallels with our own systems, what we can learn and what we could do differently.
