I saw a reference in a video talking about a mechanism in a temporal sequence memory that seemed to be saying that there would be a 'slowly changing' output which was ON for some long duration over which a given sequence was being recognized.
That sounded very useful as a kind of symbolic way to flag that a particular sequence was 'active' or partially completed.
Can someone explain how that works?
I think I understand the mechanism by which a cell in a column can indicate that it recognizes that it matches at some index in a sequence; for example for a sequence 'A B C D', there might be some set of cells which activate at the transition time when the 'C' is seen in that sequence. But is there some set of outputs that are persist over a longer period of time, which indicate that the whole 'A B C D' sequence is currently potentially occurring, i.e., would be activate as long as A, AB, ABC, or ABCD have been seen recently, or something?
