    The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology

    The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology PDF Download Ebook. Ray Kurzweil offers some important questions relating to politics, economics, and morality unanswered. If machines in our bodies can rebuild cells, for example, why couldnt they be reengineered as weapons? Or think of singularity, notes theNew York Times Book Review, as the “Manhattan Project model of pure science without ethical constraints.” Kurzweils vision requires technology, which we continue to build. But it also requires mass acceptance and faith. For over three decades, Ray Kurzweil has been one of the most respected and provocative advocates of the role of technology in our future. In his classic The Age of Spiritual Machines, he argued that computers would soon rival the full range of human

    Systems Biology: Simulation of Dynamic Network States

    Systems Biology: Simulation of Dynamic Network States PDF Download Ebook. Bernhard . Palsson shows how network reconstructions that are based on genomic and bibliomic data, and take the form of established stoichiometric matrices, can be converted into dynamic models using metabolomic and fluxomic data. The Mass Action Stoichiometric Simulation (MASS) procedure can be used for any cellular process for which data is available and allows a scalable step-by-step approach to the practical construction of network models. Specifically, it can treat integrated processes that need explicit accounting of small molecules and protein, which allows simulation at the molecular level. The material has been class-tested by the author at both the undergraduate and graduate level. All computations in
