Living organisms have amazing capabilities: they move and react, eat and digest, reproduce and heal, sense and communicate, and also evolve. All of these characteristics emerge from interactions within a rather small set of molecular building blocks such as water and sugars. In this talk we will discuss how we might mimic the properties characteristic of living systems using artificial building blocks. In fact, the number of ways in which all possible building blocks and their interactions can be combined is immensely larger than anything with which we are familiar. Navigating through this huge sp ace of possibilities we could discover artificial systems with unexpected capabilities.
