This book contains the joint proceedings of the Winter School of Hakodate (WSH) 2011 held in Hakodate, Japan, March 15–16, 2011, and the 6th International Workshop on Natural Computing (6th IWNC) held in Tokyo, Japan, March 28–30, 2012, organized by the Special Interest Group of Natural Computing (SIG-NAC), the Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence (JSAI). This volume compiles refereed contributions to various aspects of natural computing, ranging from computing with slime mold, artificial chemistry, eco-physics, and synthetic biology, to computational aesthetics.
ignorant about that we need to receive lessons from artists? Of course, sometimes we can learn something from artworks, but we can learn more lessons from other sources without visiting museums. Finally, should artworks be critical? My answer is ‘No.’ I believe such critical artworks completely differ from the original concept of ‘fine arts.’ Then, is the legacy of fine arts completely lost? Is there any possibility to find it? In order to answer these questions, we turn our eyes to natural
fundamental to the idea of computation, caused the total reorganization of the arts. Normally, algorithm is thought as a process or set of rules that must be followed in calculation. So we misunderstand that algorithm only relates to arithmetic or computer science. But, Yasuhiro Suzuki, one of the most important advocates of natural computing, reinterprets algorithm as ‘the order of movement and its timing’ (Suzuki 2012, p.5). We can find algorithm as such everywhere: in liberal arts, machine

The Significance of Natural Computing for Considering CA of Nature 2.4 125 CA Understands Kant’s Aesthetics Partially, But Insufficiently CA’s understanding of Kant’s aesthetics is not wrong because it does, in fact, depend upon a part of Kant’s aesthetics. However, given the entire scope of Kant’s aesthetics as discussed above, current CA’s understanding of Kant’s aesthetics is insufficient because it is not
perceive consciously. Natural Computing and Ambient Space. So far, research on indirect control has been mainly discussed in terms of problems of contrived controls (politics, economics, drama, etc.) (Deguchi, 2004; Goan, Fukaya, 2007; Goan, Fukaya, Tsujita, 2008). Among this research, a system was modelled which acted as a dual dynamics system, in which the controller and the agents to be controlled were completely divided and there are strong interactions, which revealed the mechanism of
for networks connecting many FSs distributed in a plane space [7, 8]. The experimental systems represent multi-objective optimization problems, and the solutions found by Physarum approximated a Pareto frontier in the space spanned by multiple evaluation-functions. Given that the computational ability of Physarum to solve such geometric problems could be expressed in relatively simple mathematical model, a new method for designing a social transport network inspired by Physarum-type algorithms
