In this paper memristive logic circuits are evolved using Cartesian Genetic Programming. Graphs comprised of implication logic (IMP) nodes are compared to more ubiquitous NAND circuitry on a number of logic circuit problems and a robotic control task. Self-adaptive search parameters are used to provide each graph with autonomy with respect to its relative mutation rates. Results demonstrate that, although NAND-logic graphs are easier to evolve, IMP graphs carry benefits in terms of (i) numbers of memristors required (ii) the time required to process the graphs.
