In our research group it is being conducted work on how to get engineered Information Systems (IS) to self- organization, which could enable researchers to create programs with significantly closer functionalities, lead- ing to a more efficient and faster computation. These IS are based on an original DNA origami which may be designed to serve as a scaffold for electronic work- ers (or programs), going beyond existing technology ei- ther in terms of Socialization, Interoperability and the process of quantification of the Quality-of-Information (QoI) being exploited, just to name a few. Indeed, sev- eral research efforts have demonstrated that DNA can be used to store or manipulate data and to solve com- plex tasks.
