Intelligent Agents and Granular Worlds
In the previous chapters, we discussed the principle of communication between granular worlds. We have not looked at the architectural and algorithmic details of these worlds. This is the objective of this chapter. We get into detail of intelligent agents embedded in the corresponding granular worlds. A general topology of a finite state machine and more specifically fuzzy finite state machine is discussed as a comprehensive computing model. These models are particularly appealing because of their memory-based processing (so we are really concerned with dynamic systems). The underlying design process immensely benefits from available learning schemes.
