Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book presents various contributions to the construction of life-like artifacts that globally show adaptation and evolution, as in the artificial life paradigm. . The book is unique in that it attempts to mix various ideas on building artificial life in hardware . . the book moves toward new methods and tools that represent the cutting edge of research. . this book is appropriate for research; in the long term, it can serve as a reference." (G. Gini, ACM Computing Reviews, November, 2009)
