Abstract:

Establishing Tools for Computing hybrids ETCH provides a starting point from which to explore how advanced computing technology, based upon biotechnology, might enable intelligent systems and provide new capabilities to the Air Force. Much effort was spent exploring published research to understand what others have accomplished, problems they encountered, the potential of the biotechnology to advance computing technology, and identifying potential paths on which to focus future research. Various computational biology tools were also examined and found to have the potential to help develop biotechnology for future computing architectures. This project provided the opportunity to gain hands on experience to complement the knowledge gained from participation in various DARPA Programs that involved biotechnology and related modeling and simulation capabilities. It established a foundation on which new research projects can be built to take biotechnology from the laboratory into the field as advanced hybrid information systems.
