Abstract

We have shown that the Reservoir Computing framework transfers to complex substrates, and that performance can increase significantly when we control and manipulate input-output mappings and external perturbation through computer-controlled evolution. We have implemented a new example of the hardware-based reservoir methodology. We have two new types of reservoirs based on Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and resistors. Results show that unconstrained computer-controlled evolution can exploit the net effect of variations in components (resistors and diodes) to form a single reservoir competitive to previous findings.
