The game of life is a recurrent neural network. Schematic illustration

Cellular automata as recurrent neural networks

Cellular automata, Recurrent neural networks

Since cellular automata are a kind of dynamical system, they may also be seen as a type of recurrent neural network. They can even be seen as a recurrent-convolutional network because each of the “hidden neurons” update depends only on the neighboring neurons and the update rule is shared across the whole hidden state.
