In this letter we explore an alternative structural representation for Steinbuch-type binary associative memories. These networks offer very generous storage capacities (both asymptotic and finite) at the expense of sparse coding. However, the original retrieval prescription performs a complete search on a fully-connected network, whereas only a small fraction of units will eventually contain desired results due to the sparse coding requirement. Instead of modelling the network as a single… CONTINUE READING
