Hybrid machines

At the CARD group biological/digital hybrid machines is a resent approach to unconventional computing machines. The morphogenetic engineering initiative and the NTNU Cyborg project are project including such hybrid computers.

The basic methods in this project will be Reservoir Computing exploiting Self-modifying network based on growing neural cultures and artificial neural networks as readout layer.

The long term goal is to understand how to construct hybrid machines, and/or to use inspiration from such machines to design bio-inspired computers.
