In this guest post, Genaro Martinez, of the Unconventional Computing Centre at UWE Bristol, tells us about a new robotics Turing machine he has developed (with Prof. Andrew Adamatzky, Ricardo Figueroa and Daniel Zamoranowhich) which will be presented in Japan next month.
We have a new robotics Turing machine which will be presented next month in Japan.
It is a collaborative result between the Unconventional Computing Lab (UWE) and the Artificial Life Robotics Lab (Instituto Politécnico Nacional (IPN), México). It is the first Turing machine based in robots. This machine will be presented next month in a historic conference in Japan: The 24th International Conference on Artificial Life and Robotics 2019 (ICAROB 2019).
You can find out more in the video below, which shows a Universal Turing Machine based on the complex elementary cellular automaton rule 110:
And see the paper to be presented at the conference here. A more extended journal paper is expected next year.
We also hope to be able to reproduce the machine in other universities in USA.
