In this chapter we will discuss a selection of application areas in which natural computation shows its value in real-world enterprises. For the purposes of demonstrating the significant impact and potential of natural computation in practice, there is certainly no shortage of documented examples that could be selected. We present just ten applications, ranging from specific problems to specific domains, and ranging from cases familiar to the authors to highlights known well in the general natural computation community. Each displays the proven promise or great potential of nature-inspired computation in high-profile and important real-world applications, and we hope that these applications inspire both students and practitioners. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2012.
