Inspired by the familiar sounds of the Cicada insect, this project aims to build spiking neural network based devices able to communicate acoustically with each other and able to adapt to their acoustic and electromagnetic environment. Sensitive to communications technology they will adapt their behaviour through an association between electromagnetic and acoustic signals that they sense.
A simulation of the sounds these devices in number *might* produce may be found here (343KB).
