A Rough Set Version of the Go Game on Physarum Machines

Andrew Schumann, Krzysztof Pancerz
2016 Proceedings of the 9th EAI International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (formerly BIONETICS)  
A special version of the game is presented, where payoffs are assessed by means of the measure defined on the basis of rough set theory.  ...  The plasmodium behavior can model an ancient Chinese game called Go. In the paper, we describe implementation of the Go game on the Physarum machines.  ...  CONCLUSIONS A new version of the Go game, based on rough set theory and implemented on the Physarum machines, has been presented. The presented version is an antagonistic game.  ...

Slime Mould Games Based on Rough Set Theory

2018 International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science  
game as a rough set; fourthly, we show how these results can be interpreted as a Go game.  ...  The behavior of the Physarum machine in the form of a transition system can be interpreted in terms of rough set theory that enables modeling some ambiguities in motions of plasmodia.  ...  In order to illustrate slime mould games defined theoretically, we introduce a special rough-set version of an ancient Chinese Go game with a standard definition of rough sets (Pawlak, 1991) and a definition  ...

Logics for Physarum Chips

Andrew Schumann, Krzysztof Pancerz
2016 Studia Humana  
The paper considers main features of two groups of logics for biological devices, called Physarum Chips, based on the plasmodium.  ...  As a result, we deal with a kind of computing. The first group of logics for Physarum Chips formalizes the plasmodium behaviour under conditions of nutrient-poor substrate.  ...  We would like to express our especially warm gratitude to Andy Adamatzky, the leader of the projectthe collaboration with whom was very interesting and promising for us.  ...

PhysarumSoft - a Software Tool for Programming Physarum Machines and Simulating Physarum Games

Andrew Schumann, Krzysztof Pancerz
2015 Proceedings of the 2015 Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems  
In the paper, we describe selected functionality of the current version of a new software tool, called PhysarumSoft, developed for programming Physarum machines and simulating Physarum games.  ...  A Physarum machine is a biological computing device implemented in the plasmodium of Physarum polycephalum or Badhamia utricularis that are one-cell organisms able to build programmable complex networks  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT This research is being fulfilled by the support of FP7-ICT-2011-8.  ...

An exploration of the literature on the use of 'swarm intelligence-based techniques' for public service problems

Turkay Dereli, Serap Ulusam Seckiner, Gulesin Sena Das, Hadi Gokcen, Mehmet Emin Aydin
2009 European Journal of Industrial Engineering  
One of the main objectives is to find acceptable solutions to Public Service Problems (PSPs) within an affordable period of time.  ...  The importance of studying public service systems and finding robust solutions to the problems encountered in public service management has increased considerably over the past decade.  ...  Thanks for proofreading of the manuscript go to Alexandra Sprano and Alptekin Durmuşoglu.  ...

Brave New Worlds: How computer simulation changes model-based science [article]

Lachlan Walmsley, University, The Australian National
A large part of science involves building and investigating models. One key feature of model-based science is that one thing is studied as a means of learning about some rather different thing.  ...  How scientists make inferences from a model to the world, then, is a topic of great interest to philosophers of science.  ...  In addition to an old and on-going literature on its own version of the strategy, climate scientists have discussed ways of conceptualising the space of different models within this literature.  ...
