Cognitive Radio systems rely heavily on artificial intelligence capabilities to perform a variety of tasks. Sharing spectrum resources more efficiently, self organization, and interference mitigation are just a few examples. For many CR applications, a primary goal is to decentralize and distribute network functions among participant nodes. As a consequence, any given node in a CR network may be required to coordinate with not only its peers, but also with a number of unknown transmitters. Thus, it is desirable that individual nodes be capable of predicting future states of non-peer transmitters in order to better optimize their own operation.
