KGaA, Weinheim Liquid cybernetic systems with embodied intelligence solutions mimicking biologic systems, in response to future increasingly distributed sensing and the resulting data to be managed, has been proposed as the next cybernetic paradigm. Storing and computing information inherently pushes research toward extremely high packing densities, shifting from classical into quantum (particle, molecular) physics, chemistry, and materials science with the drawback of requiring very expensive equipment and exotic matter or matter states. Solutions represent a cheap and easy-to-handle platform for data storage and readout in liquido, where a physical structure able to change configuration under electrical stimuli reversibly exchanges entropy with the external environment. Tectomers are proposed as a candidate for such an adaptive structure. A tectomer is an oligomer made of few oligoglycine units with a common center. Tectomers undergo pH dependent assembly to form a single layer supramer across a surface. Tectomers represent a stable paradigm, in their amorphous or crystalline forms, reversibly influenced by solution pH, whose electronic properties are studied herein. Through a reasonable hypothesis, how solvated cybernetic systems can be exploited in the rush for zettascale computing will be looked upon.
