Abstract : Typically viewed as a deterministic model of spatial computing, cellular automata are here considered as a collective system subject to the noise inherent to natural computing. The classical updating scheme is replaced by stochastic versions which either randomly update cells or disrupt the cell-to-cell transmission of information. We then use the novel updating schemes to probe the behaviour of Elementary Cellular Automata, and observe a wide variety of results. We study these behaviours in the scope of macroscopic statistical phenomena and microscopic analysis. Finally, we discuss the possibility to use updating schemes to probe the robustness of complex systems.
