Twenty five uses of slime mould in electronics and computing: Survey

Adamatzky, Andrew

Authors



Abstract

Slime mould Physarum polycephalum is a large single cell capable for distributed sensing, concurrent information processing, parallel computation and decentralised actuation. The ease of culturing and experimenting with Physarum makes this slime mould an ideal substrate for real-world implementations of unconventional computers. We provide a concise summary of what exact computing and sensing devices can be made from the slime mould. These devices range from morphological processors for computational geometry to self-routing wires and memristors.
