Vida Artificial: Ciencia e Ingeniería de Sistemas Complejos

Translated title of the contribution: Artificial Life: Science and Engineering of Complex Systems


Research output: Book/ReportBook


Artificial life is a frontier science that seeks to understand the essence and nature of life through the construction (simulation or synthesis) of artificial systems that exhibit properties normally associated with living organisms. It is, therefore, the first systematic research effort aimed at unraveling the logic of life - and of (artificial) systems that exhibit characteristics or behaviours characteristic of life, understanding life as a phenomenon of growing complexity.

This book is an introduction to the science of artificial life, a topic on which Spanish literature is scarce. At its core, the text claims the role of artificial life as a scientific research project in its own right and highlights its scientific, philosophical and engineering value in the face of the new framework of knowledge and the new forms of action on the world that are condensed in the sciences of complexity and in the engineering of complex systems, respectively.
