Achieving compositional connectionism means finding a way to represent role-filler bindings in a connectionist system without sacrificing role-filler independence. Role-filler binding schemes based on varieties of conjunctive coding (the most common approach in the connectionist literature) fail to preserve role-filler independence. At the same time, dynamic binding of roles to fillers (e.g., by synchrony of firing) represents bindings without sacrificing independence, but is inadequate for… CONTINUE READING
