Below I mentioned that my systemic computer was featured in a New Scientist article. Since then, the work has been picked up worldwide and has appeared in many surprising places. Many thanks for the interest! Some of the other articles have included, erm... some interesting claims. Just to clarify: the systemic computer can repair its damaged code. It is not a PC, although it has been simulated by a PC and a Mac. It is not a new operating system, it is an entirely new computer architecture which runs code on bare metal (no operating system). The FPGA is not a resource manager - we used it to implement the entire computer plus a conventional co-processor. It does not use Chaos Theory. It does not detect overheating. It does not run Ms Windows or Max OS X or any operating system. Oh, and it's not Skynet. Not yet anyway!
Here are just a few of the other articles about the work. I got to page 10 in Google and gave up. I know there are many, many more out there. Thanks for going to so much trouble, folks.
