Letter to Editor: Hormonal computers?
Jordi Vallverdú

Today, biomimetic approaches to unconventional computing have been exploring neurotransmitters’ roles. But hormonal aspects of artificial cognition are still unexplored. And from a cognitive perspective, such a complex biochemical combination allows fundamental mechanisms of information processing, from abductive tasks to attention or intentionality. This paper will explore the theoretical ways by which hormonal computers could open a different way to create not only innovative machines but also programming ways of dealing with such bioinspiration.

Keywords: Biocomputing, hormones, neurotransmitters
