Computer science or computing science (abbreviated CS or CompSci) is the scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications. A computer scientist specializes in the theory of computation and the design of computational systems.
Computing using unconventional methods found in nature has become an important branch of computer science, which might aid scientists construct more robust and reliable devices. For instance, the ability of biological systems to assemble and grow on their own enables much higher interconnection densities or swarm intelligence algorithms, like ant colonies that find optimal paths to food sources.

No, not the sports car, neither the predatory feline, but Oak Ridge National Labs Jaguar – a supercomputer of immense computing capabilities set to top the ranks of the fastest computers in the world, for the second time, after a GPU (graphical processing unit) upgrade. Capable of simulating physical systems with heretofore unfeasible speed and accuracy -from [...]
