Abstract

A figure of merit, the probability a bit is correct after update, is used to evaluate the performance of randomly coded outer-product associative memory models. Networks with bipolar binary states and nonzero diagonal connections are shown to yield the best performance with respect to this figure of merit. A surprising result is that an all-positive network, one with binary states and positive connections, is superior to a standard Hopfield style network with binary states and bipolar connections. A prescription for the optimal threshold point for the all-positive network is given.
