CPU and RAM computing is finally showing its age. Clock speed growth
has stalled, multicore cache coherence scales poorly, and host-based
computer security is a global living nightmare. Indefinite scalability
is a first-principles design criterion aimed at encouraging a major
evolutionary transition in computer architecture, in which hardware
determinism is abandoned and scalability and robustness are
prioritized ahead of efficiency and even correctness.

Over twenty-five years his work has involved neural networks and
machine learning, evolutionary algorithms and artificial life, and
biological approaches to security, architecture, and models of
