This is the creative automata blog for the Creative Automata Laboratory at the University of Texas at Dallas. The goal of the lab is to explore representation of process abstractions used in mathematics and computing starting with historical automata up to theoretical automata, code, and data in present day technology. Representation is informed by areas outside of computer science such as design, the arts, and humanities. The purpose of the representation is enhanced mass communications, education, and training in the arts of computing. Paul Fishwick serves as Director of the Laboratory.
