We propose a self-organized chaotic attractor based CMOS/Memristor circuit framework called Self-Evolvable-Logic-Fabric (SELF) for autonomous motor control. We propose to demonstrate SELF's ability to spontaneously evolve algorithmic pathways to control a robotic arm to catch a ball utilizing visual and proprioceptive feedback while varying parameters that increase the complexity and difficulty of the task.
