Introducing Cellular Automata

Coursera Project Network

In this hands-on guided project, you will delve into the fascinating realm of Cellular Automata, a powerful modeling framework for exploring inter-scale dynamics. Throughout the course, you will investigate how simple local-level rules give rise to global pattern formation and self-organization.

  • Play with John Conways' "Game of Life" and replicate some of Stephen Wolfram's research published in "A New Kind of Science."
  • Participate in co-creating a Cellular Automata model using Golly and NetLogo simulations software.
  • Explore cutting-edge applications of Cellular Automata in the fields of Biology (Morphogenesis) and Physics.

By the end of this course, you will have gained a deep understanding of Cellular Automata and its diverse applications in various scientific disciplines.
