In science:

Weighted Transducers Loosely speaking, a transducer is a weighted automaton with an input and output alphabet.
Graph Kernels
Developmental switches (Griffiths, 2001) are another interesting case; these transduce environmental information but in addition to their bandwidth limitations they appear to have a more limited intergenerational transmission role.
The transmission sense of information
Here topological automata are topological analogs of transducers.
Combinatorial models of expanding dynamical systems
Let us recall the definition of automata (also known as transducers ).
