Evolving Finite State Machine (e-FSM)

An online evolving method named evolving Finite State Machine (e-FSM) can determine unknown states (situations) and identify transitions. At the moment, it is similar to Markov Chain, but its structure evolves over time. This approach enables controllers to recognize unexpected situations and learn optimal decisions over time. Also, the e-FSM is fully explainable, while Deep Neural Network is not.
