(In simple words)
Ever wondered how computers and other gadgets recognize patterns, make decisions, or detect errors? A piece of the puzzle lies in finite automata, which are like tiny machines that follow simple rules to do their job. To make things easier, we'll break down the concept of finite automata into simpler terms and show you how they can be used in real-life situations.
Finite Automata Explained
A finite automaton is like a little robot that can be in different states or moods, depending on what it "sees" in the input. It follows a set of rules to change its state, and when it's done looking at the input, it will either accept or reject it. There are two types of finite automata:
