mikejuk writes: Yes you did read the title correctly — slime mould can solve optimization problems.
There are two ways to solve any problem using a simulation you can use analog or digital methods. Analog methods have been out of fashion for some time but they could be about to return if the slime mould approach catches on.
So if you find yourself complaining about the road system, electricity grid, water distribution ... it might be a slime mould you have to blame.
