“ Lateral Inhibition ” in a Fully Distributed Connectionist Architecture

  title={“ Lateral Inhibition ” in a Fully Distributed Connectionist Architecture},
  author={Simon D. Levy and Ross W. Gayler},
We present a fully distributed connectionist architecture supporting lateral inhibition / winner-takes all competition. All items (individuals, relations, and structures) are represented by high-dimensional distributed vectors, and (multi)sets of items as the sum of such vectors. The architecture uses a neurally plausible permutation circuit to support a multiset intersection operation without decomposing the summed vector into its constituent items or requiring more hardware for more complex… CONTINUE READING
