Combinatorial optimization with Gaussian machines


An artificial neuron model, called the Gaussian machine, is introduced. Gaussian machines have graded output responses, as well as stochastic behavior caused by random noise added to the input of each neuron. The Gaussian machine model includes the McCulloch-Pitts model, the Hopfield machine, and the Boltzmann machine as special cases. To demonstrate the… (More)
