    The University of Ulster and telecoms giant BT are exploring ways of making computer systems "self-healing".
    The aim of the research is to create systems which mimic the work of the human body - regenerating themselves without outside intervention.
    UU computing expert Roy Sterritt said the rapidly growing complexity of integrating and managing computing systems is threatening to overwhelm the capability of even the most expert software developers and system administrators.
    Current computing networks, he said, are now so complex and difficult to manage ... ... ....
    To drive forward this research work, Mr Sterritt has been awarded a BT Exact Short-Term Research Fellowship, which will be based at BT's Riverside Tower comple in Belfast.
