If [alpha] = id, the Hom-Jordan associator
reduces to the usual Jordan associator
The Describe Associator
facilitates the generation of one-dimensional or multidimensional association rules [HaKa01].
But our cybernetic approach allows that detailing of Miller's subsystems for processing information, especially of his associator
, that we need to compare Miller's and Beer's theories.
The acquisition of sequence knowledge by the phonological reading route will be facilitated by the presence of sequence knowledge in the acoustic to articulatory motor pattern associator
, as has been shown in simulations by Harm and Seidenberg .
provides associations among various information objects such as inputs signals, decisions and effects.
The ninth and last primary data-processing subsystem is the associator
. The associator
is 'the subsystem which carries out the first stage of the learning process, forming enduring associations among items of information in the system' (Miller, 1978, p.
The emphasis in Figure 6 is on the external connections to the associator
, input transducer, internal transducer, decoder, encoder and motor subsystems (through the channel and net, not shown).
High-effectiveness groups perceive the input transducer, memory and encoder processes as high in quality but perceive the associator
, producer and supporter processes as low in quality.
The two critical subsystems in a living system that deal with the learning processes are associator
(4) Internal processes of information include those of the reproducer, the internal transducer, the channel and net, the timer, the associator
, the memory, and the decider subsystems.
. The subsystem which carries out the first stage of the learning process, forming enduring associations among items of information in the earth's system.
Those processing information are the input transducer, the internal transducer, the channel and net, the timer, the decoder, the associator
, the memory, the encoder, the output transducer, and the decider.
