Towards unconventional computing through simulated evolution: Control of nonlinear media by a learning classifier system (2008)
Journal Article
Bull, L., Budd, A., Stone, C., Uroukov, I., Costello, B. D. L., & Adamatzky, A. (2008). Towards unconventional computing through simulated evolution: Control of nonlinear media by a learning classifier system. Artificial Life, 14(2), 203-222. https://doi.org/10.1162/artl.2008.14.2.203

We propose that the behavior of nonlinear media can be controlled automatically through evolutionary learning. By extension, forms of unconventional computing (viz., massively parallel nonlinear computers) can be realized by such an approach. In this...

Report
Bull, L., Adamatzky, A., de Lacy Costello, B., Husbands, P., O’Shea, M., Purcell, W., & Taylor, A. (2008). Non-linear media based computers: chemical and neuronal networks through machine learning

There is growing interest in research into the development of hybrid wetware-silicon devices focused on exploiting their potential for 'non-linear computing'. The aim is to harness the as yet only partially understood intricate dynamics of non-linear...

Using the examples of an excitable chemical system (the Belousov-Zhabotinsky medium) and plasmodium of Physarum polycephalum we show that universal computation in a geometrically unconstrained medium is only possible when resources (excitability or c...

Towards predicting spatial complexity: a learning classifier system approach to the identification of cellular automata (2005)
Presentation / Conference
Bull, L., Lawson, I., Adamatzky, A., & de Lacy Costello, B. (2005, September). Towards predicting spatial complexity: a learning classifier system approach to the identification of cellular automata. Paper presented at IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation, 2005

This paper presents a novel approach to the programming of automata-based simulation and computation using a machine learning technique. The identification of lattice-based automata for real-world applications is cast as a data mining problem. Our ap...
