    Question State machine

    For quiet a time i have been interested in Finite State Machines, because of its sequences that are very flexible and a bit of artificial intelligence implemented in it.

    I would like to see someone to invent a learning state machine, whenever a machine encounters a situation in witch it finds no memmory for execution it will ask the human what to do and execute it and there after store that information to the rest and continue its job picking up next decissions on memmory as before, pluss a new situation added by the human.

    That is what i call the future, because after years and years of this computer asking the human what to do it will become intelligente, and react to nearly all situations. in principle known to man.

    Comments.

    I was watching Click the other day, and I saw some amazing projects! Most of the were robots, learning and thinking for themselves, at a small scale for the moment, but the potential is unreal! Very fascinating stuff!

    Finite state machines are the least powerful and "dumbest" formalized model of computation.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Well, not really the future. Learning state machines exist for a long time and have been applied. For further reference study Machine Learning textbook. And Learning state machine for use in internet protocol networks - US Patent 7002974 Abstract is one potential application of a learning state machine

    Meanwhile, a learning state machine that would hypothetically run for millions of years, would still always remain nothing more than a data flow diagram. Adding new states and new flows would only increase the device capabilities in terms of memory. Not its intelligence or even its Artificial Intelligence.

    SMs are archaic models (with their uses, naturally) that limit themselves to map cause-effect relationships. They only give the illusion of Artificial Intelligence. True Artificial Intelligence, in computer terms and within our current capabilities, is concerned exactly with the ability of the machine to "learn" and "reason" with incomplete information.

    That is the future.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
