echo state network

An Echo State Network (ESN) is like a big, virtual brain that can learn things. It has lots of neurons (parts) that are all connected together. The neurons take in information and make decisions based on that information. Think of it like a spider web: When a spider detects something on one part of the web, all of the other parts can sense it too. ESNs work the same way: When they see something, they remember it and can use it to make predictions or decisions. ESNs can be used to do things like recognize patterns in data, predict future events, and control machines. So it's like a really smart computer brain!
