  • The "Life Machine": a quantum metaphor for living matter - prof. Mario Rasetti

Il giorno 23/1/2018 dalle ore 15:30 alle ore 17:30 nella aula 14 - 15 IV piano St. 9 il prof. Mario Rasetti (Dipartimento di Fisica, Politecnico di Torino e ISI, Torino) terrà il seminario dal titolo :

The "Life Machine": a quantum metaphor for living matter


Aim of this talk is to argue for the existence of a self-consistent scheme for the construction of a conceptual, virtual 'machinè (term which has here a significance analogous to that of the Turing machine, i.e., a formal device which manipulates and evolves 'states'), able to perform all what living matter - as distinguished from inert matter - can do and inanimate matter cannot; in a formal setting consistent exclusively with the quantum laws. In other words, the objective is to prove the possibility, at least in principle, to create a theoretical construct, in the form of a conceptual framework representing and providing the operational tools of a "Life Machine", mimicking the features of Life.
