Automata Theory in Hardware/AI[edit source]

The following statements are made:

A branch of AI deals with how machince can stimulate human behaviour, its called the Automata Theory.
Automata Theory, concept that describes how machines mimic human behavior.

However, either the writer was thinking of a different theory, or is only showing an incomplete definition of Automata Theory. Automata Theory usually deals with states and state transitions, useful in things like string parsing and such (regular expressions especially). In my experience with Automata, I haven't heard it related to AI, although I can see that it might have applications in it, in which case it should be made more clear. --IsmAvatar 04:11, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
