Embracing Complexity in Robotics: Our CEO Presents Amoeba-inspired Optimization for Reshaping Smart Factories at Joint University Event


In a collaborative effort between Howard University (the Quantum Biology Laboratory) and Tufts University (the Allen Discovery Center), we are honored to announce a highly anticipated online lecture by our CEO, Dr. Masashi AONO. Scheduled for August 14th at 10:00 am Eastern Time, this special event will offer attendees an exclusive insight into the pioneering field of amoeba-inspired combinatorial optimization.



The presentation, titled “Amoeba-inspired Combinatorial Optimization Engine for Trajectory Planning of Thousands of Self-driving Robots,” explores the groundbreaking techniques inspired by the unique problem-solving behavior of the true slime mold, Physarum polycephalum. This single-celled amoeboid organism exhibits complex spatiotemporal oscillatory dynamics, inspiring the development of our “AmoebaTSP” and “AmoebaSAT” algorithms. These innovative algorithms are formulated to address NP-hard and NP-complete problems, the Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP) and the Boolean Satisfiability Problem (SAT), providing the foundation for our “electronic amoebae.” They have been implemented using both analog and digital electronic circuits for rapid search performance.


Our CEO will emphasize the real-world applications of the AmoebaSAT-based electronic amoeba, specifically designed for trajectory planning to avoid collisions and congestion among thousands of self-driving robots in smart factories and warehouses. The lecture will delve into the transformative potential of this complex-systems-inspired technology in reshaping the manufacturing and logistics sectors.
