Imagine a world where computers and networks heal themselves, protect themselves, configure themselves, manage themselves...

Managing just one computer can tax the average person’s technical capabilities. How do we thrive in a world where we might be connected to thousands of computational devices? Join us for a seminar and discussion to explore the emerging world of autonomic computing -- the second event in a series on The Future of Computing.

An overview article on autonomic computing by Dr. M. Mitchell Waldrop (author of Complexity and The Dream Machine) will be released at this event.

Location: 5th floor conference room
