Evolving Spike-Train Processors

  title={Evolving Spike-Train Processors},
  author={Juan Liu and Andrzej Buller},
The research described in this paper was motivated by the idea to process purposefully given spike-trains using a cellular automaton (CA). CAs have three attractive features, namely massive parallelism, locality of cellular interactions, and simplicity of basic components (cells). However, the difficulty of designing a CA for a specific behavior causes limited interest in this computational paradigm. Automating the design process would substantially enhance the viability of CAs. Evolving CAs… CONTINUE READING
