State Machine & Cognitive Architecture


A neural state machine (NSM) is a type of artificial intelligence (AI) system that uses neural networks to model and control the behavior of a system. It is based on the idea that the behavior of a system can be represented as a sequence of states, and that a neural network can be trained to predict the next state in the sequence based on the current state and other input information.

NSMs are related to cognitive architecture in that both are concerned with modeling and simulating the functions of the human mind. Cognitive architecture is a broad term that refers to a set of principles and theories about how the human mind works, and how it can be simulated or emulated using artificial intelligence techniques. NSMs are one approach to implementing a cognitive architecture, using neural networks to model and control the behavior of a system.
