neural network

A form of artificial intelligence that relies on a group of interconnected mathematical equations that accept input data and calculate an output. The more often the equations are used, the more reliable and valuable they become in drawing conclusions from data. Neural networks have been used in health care to interpret electrocardiograms and to make and suggest diagnoses.

neural network

a proposed system of interconnecting neurones to explain the higher brain functions such as memory perception and learning, where the pattern of resulting activity can be varied through the number and strength of connections between the constituent neurones.

If, for example, we had a distributed representation of cup with coffee and also a distributed representation of cup without coffee, and if we subtracted the latter from the former, we would not end up with a context-independent representation of coffee but rather a representation of coffee in the particular context of being inside a cup.
There are localized, locally distributed, and fully distributed representation schemes.

For more details and examples on distributed representations of data the reader should refer to [20].
When using exactly the same training and testing example sets, as well as the same templated binary distributed representation (designed for connectionist models), the testing accuracies of SPA and the connectionist model are close (56.6 percent versus 54.4 percent).
However, the learned representations of images are entangled and barely interpretable because each dimension in distributed representations does not have a specific meaning.
