The use and search of finite-state machine (FSM) representations has a long history in evolutionary computation. The flexibility of Mealy-style and Moore-style FSMs is traded against the large number of parameters required to encode machines with many states and/or large output alphabets. Recent work using Mealy FSMs on the Tartarus problem has shown good… CONTINUE READING
