The Lévy walk is a pattern that is often seen in the movement of living organisms; it has both ballistic and random features and is a behavior that has been recognized in various animals and unicellular organisms, such as amoebae, in recent years. We proposed an amoeba locomotion model that implements Bayesian and inverse Bayesian inference as a Lévy walk algorithm that bal-ances exploration and exploitation, and through a comparison with general random walks, we con-firmed its effectiveness. While Bayesian inference is expressed only by P(h) = P(h|d), we introduce inverse Bayesian inference expressed as P(d|h) = P(d) in a symmetry fashion. That symmetry con-tributes to balancing contracting and expanding the probability space. Additionally, the conditions of various environments were set, and experimental results were obtained that corresponded to changes in gait patterns with respect to changes in the conditions of actual metastatic cancer cells.
