  Homeostasis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Multicellular organisms require a homeostatic internal environment, in order to live; some ecologists believe this principle also applies to the global environment.
Generally, with the recognition of divergence from the homeostatic condition, positive feedbacks are called into play, whereas once the homeostatic condition is approached, negative feedback is used for "fine tuning" responses.
Similarly such forest glades contribute ecological services, such as the regulation of microclimates or of the hydrological cycle for an ecosystem, and a number of different ecosystems act together to maintain homeostasis perhaps of a number of river catchments within a bioregion.

 Sociable machines - Homeostatic regulation mechanisms
Kismet's drive processes are designed such that the robot is in homeostatic balance when it is interacting well with people, and when the interactions are neither overwhelming nor under-stimulating.
In this manner, the robot's ability to satisfy its drives and remain in a state of "well being" is reflected by its affective state.
When in the homeostatic regime, a drive contributes to those processes characterized by positive valence and balanced arousal.

 Instructions for Homeostatic Colour Network Demos
The first Homeostat was built by Ross Ashby in the early 1950s and is described in his book 'Design for a Brain', Chapman and Hall, 2nd Edition, 1966 (ISBN 0-412-20090-2).
In all of the demos the activation of the units is perturbed by a wave that crosses from left to right across the network, causing the activation of the units to go outside their stable range (visualized by the units changing colour to a red/pink).
The next demo shows the homeostatic network code incorporated into Trevor Graham's simulation framework, which is based on a simluation of the buoy network written by Rob Saunders.

 Essay: Homeostatic mechanisms I have monitored. - Coursework.Info
Homeostatic mechanisms I have monitored Homeostasis comes from the Greek words, homeo meaning constant and status meaning state or condition.
Key measurements of homeostatic functions are body temperature, breathing patterns, lung volume (peak flow), and blood pressure.
A change in these can help identify dysfunction of homeostatic balance which could be fatal if not treated or could be signs of shock when an accident has occurred.

 Homeostatic Computing
He said that the processes inside the cell have multiple homeostatic features, so that you can purturb the system in many different ways and the elements will come back to "normal" computation.
In the "system design" of the body is a control mechanism to take misbehaving units offline (I didn't know that, so thanks for the instruction.) That isn't a bad idea, but it may not provide the basis for homeostatic computing (although it does seem to match the server farm architecture pretty well).
My question for homeostatic computing is to enquire about the internals of a cell, where to my limited knowledge there seems to be a lot less "system design" present.
