A Model for Computer Life.
MetadataShow full item record
We propose a model to organize the logical level of the computers interconnected worldwide. We assume this universe populated with programs of a new kind called beings. Beings are autonomous, active and interoperable to the point they behave like living individuals. They are aware of their capabilities, able to use those of other beings, may self-modify and may give birth to new beings. They act autonomously, without our intervention. They may create organizations providing services beyond capabilities of a single being. We show the utility for the beings of a number of organizations we use for ourselves. Our expected profit from the computer life is less hassle in managing the computer universe, better operational capabilities at our disposal and financial profit from the lease of services of beings. We show that the model is basically feasible already and we point out the corresponding research issues.
