Title:The emergence of information in biology: common principles in the evolution of organization
Author(s):Wright, Daniel T.
Subject(s):self-organizing information
emergent organization
Abstract:Information organization and management are commonly understood to be the products of conscious processes under- taken by human beings. While not incorrect, this view is narrow and excludes a wide range of natural, evolved infor- mational mechanisms in biological systems. The creation of human information organization systems that can exercise a degree of autonomy in interactions with the world { so that they can be exible and adapt to changing conditions { would bene t from an understanding of the biological in- formation systems that do this. By broadening our view of information organization to include these natural systems, we stand to gain a deeper understanding of both principles of information organization and the natural world.
