Synthetic Cells Engaged in Molecular Communication: An Opportunity for Modelling Shannon- and Semantic-Information in the Chemical Domain

Maurizio Magarini, Pasquale Stano
2021 Frontiers in Communications and Networks  
(in particular, the construction of "synthetic cells") and the engineering approaches to molecular communication.  ...  More specifically, we will discuss the possibility of enquiring on the transfer and manipulation of information in the chemical domain, and interpreting such a dynamics according to Shannon or to MacKay-Bateson  ...  MC, in this respect, promises analogous progresses in the bio-chem domains and the consequent development of bio-chem-ICTs.  ...

Is Research on "Synthetic Cells" Moving to the Next Level?

Pasquale Stano
2018 Life  
Such a tour will be an occasion for asking whether times are ripe for a sort of qualitative jump toward novel SC prototypes: is research on "synthetic cells" moving to a next level?  ...  In recent years this bottom-up synthetic biology area has considerably progressed, and the field is currently experiencing a rapid expansion.  ...  The more general subject of bio-chem-ICTs involves biological, chemical, electronic and hybrid approaches [167] .  ...

The role of regulation in the origin and synthetic modelling of minimal cognition

Leonardo Bich, Alvaro Moreno
2016 Biosystems (Amsterdam. Print)  
In fact, we argue, Synthetic Biology can contribute to the study of minimal cognition (and therefore to a minimal AI), by providing a privileged approach to the study of these mechanisms by means of artificial  ...  In doing so, our aim is to provide a theoretical account that can also work as a possible conceptual bridge between Synthetic Biology and Artificial Intelligence.  ...  The authors acknowledge the grants from the Basque Government (IT 590-13 to AM and LB, and postdoctoral fellowship to LB), from the Spanish Ministry of Economía y Competitividad (FFI2011-25665 to AM and  ...
