Towards the coevolution of cellular automata controllers for chemical computing with the B-Z reaction
We propose that the behaviour of non-linear media can be controlled automatically through coevolutionary systems. By extension, forms of unconventional computing, i.e., massively parallel non-linear computers, can be realised by such an approach. In this study a light-sensitive sub-excitable BelousovZhabotinsky reaction in which a checkerboard image comprised of varying light intensity cells projected onto the surface of a catalyst loaded gel is controlled using a heterogeneous cellular automaton. Pulses of wave fragments are injected onto the gel resulting in rich spatio-temporal behaviour and a coevolved cellular automaton is shown able to either increase or decrease the chemical activity through dynamic control of the light intensity within each cell in both simulated and real chemical systems.
