The concept of anticipatory system was first introduced by the biomathematician Robert Rosen (1). This concept is to describe a system, having a predictive model of itself and (or) its environment, which is able, at a given moment, to go to a state in accordance with an expected future state predicted by the model. To accomplish this task, the system takes decisions, by using an algorithm which realizes the anticipation process and gives to the system a first order intelligence. The vocal interface introduces a new control problem of a deterministic automaton using uncertain information. The purpose is, starting from an unknown initial state and using voice, to either order the automation to an exact final state or give to the automaton information from the environment. The present work, after introducing the overall problem, shortly presents the speaker identification and the speech recognition procedures, using wavelet transform, loudness calculation and neural networks. The work continues with the essential elements of the anticipatory system and the anticipation algorithm and finishes with the control strategy procedure of the automaton and the decision criteria. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
