The fact that such solutions are not constrained to be incremental improvements but can be redesigned from the ground up opens up a far wider space of possible implementations. Similarly, there is no necessity for engineered systems to be limited by the need for self‐replication and self‐development, or even necessarily self‐sufficiency for obtaining energy or maintaining survival, although all these characteristics might have some advantage if machines could be developed that exhibit them. Nevertheless, it is still valuable to consider what can be learnt from imitating animals.
