Disjunctive models of Boolean category learning

  title={Disjunctive models of Boolean category learning},
  author={Steven E. Hampson and Dennis J. Volper},
  journal={Biological Cybernetics},
Four connectionistic/neural models which are capable of learning arbitrary Boolean functions are presented. Three are provably convergent, but of differing generalization power. The fourth is not necessarily convergent, but its empirical behavior is quite good. The time and space characteristics of the four models are compared over a diverse range of functions and testing conditions. These include the ability to learn specific instances, to effectively generalize, and to deal with irrelevant or… CONTINUE READING
