Design of a hybrid robot control system using memristor-model and ant-inspired based information transfer protocols (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Gale, E., de Lacy Costello, B., & Adamatzky, A. (2013, May). Design of a hybrid robot control system using memristor-model and ant-inspired based information transfer protocols. Paper presented at Workshop on Unconventional Approaches to Robotics, Automation and Control Inspired by Nature

It is not always possible for a robot to process all the information from its sensors in a timely manner and thus quick and yet valid approximations of the robot's situation are needed. Here we design hybrid control for a robot within this limit usin...

Does the D.C. response of memristors allow robotic short-term memory and a possible route to artificial time perception? (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Gale, E., de Lacy Costello, B., & Adamatzky, A. (2013, May). Does the D.C. response of memristors allow robotic short-term memory and a possible route to artificial time perception?. Paper presented at Workshop Unconventional Approaches to Robotics, Automation and Control Inspired by Nature (UARACIN) in:

Time perception is essential for task switching, and in the mammalian brain appears alongside other processes. Memristors are electronic components used as synapses and as models for neurons. The d.c. response of memristors can be considered as a typ...

Beyond Markov chains, towards adaptive memristor network-based music generation (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Gale, E., Matthews, O., de Lacy Costello, B., & Adamatzky, A. (2013, April). Beyond Markov chains, towards adaptive memristor network-based music generation. Paper presented at First AISB symposium on Music and Unconventional Computing

We undertook a study of the use of a memristor network for music generation, making use of the memristor's memory to go beyond the Markov hypothesis. Seed transition matrices are created and populated using memristor equations, and which are shown to...

Comparison of ant-inspired gatherer allocation approaches using memristor-based environmental models (2011)
Presentation / Conference
Gale, E., de Lacy Costello, B., & Adamatzky, A. (2011, December). Comparison of ant-inspired gatherer allocation approaches using memristor-based environmental models. Paper presented at Bioadcom 2011 Workshop on Bio-inspired Approaches to Advanced Computing and Communications (BioAdcom2011)

Memristors are used to compare three gathering techniques in an already-mapped environment where resource locations are known. The All Site model, which apportions gatherers based on the modeled memristance of that path, proves to be good at increasi...

Neuromorphic computing with memristors: Preliminary experimental results (2011)
Presentation / Conference
Gale, E., de Lacy Costello, B., & Adamatzky, A. (2011, November). Neuromorphic computing with memristors: Preliminary experimental results. Poster presented at Building Bridges to Build Brains

Individual memristors have been observed demonstrating neuron-like spiking patterns. It has been shown elsewhere that memristors provide superior modelling for neurons then the Hodgkin-Huxley model. Due to these results we expect memristors to be e... Read More about Neuromorphic computing with memristors: Preliminary experimental results.

Evolving spiking networks with variable memristors (2011)
Presentation / Conference

Towards evolving spiking networks with memristive synapses (2011)
Presentation / Conference
Howard, G. D., Gale, E., Bull, L., de Lacy Costello, B., & Adamatzky, A. (2011, April). Towards evolving spiking networks with memristive synapses. Paper presented at IEEE Symposium on Artificial Life (ALIFE), 2011

This paper presents a spiking neuro-evolutionary system which implements memristors as neuromodulatory connections, ie whose weights can vary during a trial. The evolutionary design process exploits parameter self-adaptation and a constructionist app... Read More about Towards evolving spiking networks with memristive synapses.

Investigation of the semiochemicals of confused flour beetle Tribolium confusum Jaquelin du Val and grain weevil Sitophilus granarius (L.) in stored wheat grain and flour (2010)
Presentation / Conference
Abuelnnor, N., Jones, P., Ratcliffe, N. M., de Lacy Costello, B., & Spencer-Phillips, P. T. (2010, June). Investigation of the semiochemicals of confused flour beetle Tribolium confusum Jaquelin du Val and grain weevil Sitophilus granarius (L.) in stored wheat grain and flour. Paper presented at 10th International Working Conference on Stored Product Protection

This investigation sets out to identify specific volatile compounds from both flour infested with the confused flour beetle, Tribolium confusum and wheat grain infested with the grain weevil, Sitophilus granarius. These volatiles could help to aid th...
