The origin of life can be explained in terms of the origination and evolution of the genetic code and metabolic processes mediated by replicating iron-rich clays.

Alan Turing's theory of computation outlines a logical mechanism for how abstract systems can evolve and generate new systems. John von Neumann extended this by introducing the concept of kinematic self replicating machines. These machines contain a description of themselves that can be copied as part of a self replication process. This concept has become all too familiar to us as computer viruses have spread across the web.

GBC/ACM – The Greater Boston Chapter of the ACM

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), is the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society. It provides resources that advance computing as a science and a profession. The Greater Boston Chapter of the ACM (GBC/ACM) provides our community of professionals with current and practical information from the innovators themselves. We are a forum for collaborative learning that provides the community with free Evening Seminars and full day Professional Development Seminars that feature distinguished speakers and guests.

GBC/ACM has been one of the most active and successful chapters in the ACM worldwide since its founding in 1962. GBC/ACM is run by volunteers and we encourage your participation in achieving our ongoing mission.
