In support of this, we have made available a set of LAT[subscript E]X macros to allow others to produce evaltrace diagrams similar to the ones that appear here."
Connectionism and compositional semantics by David S Touretzky( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mere pattern transformers cannot learn the PP attachment task without an exponential training set. Connectionist-style computation still has many valuable ideas to offer, so this is not an indictment of connectionism's potential. It is an argument for a more sophisticated and more symbolic connectionist approach to language."
Rules and maps in connectionist symbol processing by David S Touretzky( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report contains two papers to be presented at the Eleventh Annual Conference of the Cognitive Science Society. The first describes a simulation of chunking in a connectionist network. The network applies context-sensitive rewrite rules to strings of symbols as they flow through its input buffer. Chunking is implemented as a form of self-supervised learning using back-propagation. Over time, the network improves its efficiency by replacing simple rule sequences with more complex chunks. The second paper describes the first implementation of Lakoff's new theory of cognitive phonology. His approach is based on a multilevel representation of utterances to which all rules apply in parallel. Cognitive phonology is free of the rule ordering constraints that make classical generative theories computationally p awkward. The connectionist implementation utilizes a novel many maps architecture that may explain certain constraints on phonological rules not adequately accounted for by more abstract models.

A connectionist implementation of cognitive phonology by Deirdre Wheeler( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "This paper reports on an initial implementation of Lakoff's theory of cognitive phonology in a connectionist network. Standard generative phonological theories require serial application of rules, which results in derivations with numerous intermediate states. This is incompatible with the connectionist goals of psychological and biological plausibility, and may also hinder learnability. Lakoff's theory of cognitive phonology offers a solution to some of these problems by providing an alternative way to think about derivations and ordered rules, and by eliminating the need for right-to-left iterative rule application. On the other hand, Lakoff's proposal presents certain computational difficulties due to its appeal to Harmony Theory. We present a reformulation of cognitive phonology using a novel clustering mechanism that completely eliminates iteration and permits an efficient feed-forward implementation."
Controlling search dynamics by manipulating energy landscapes by David S Touretzky( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Touretzky and Hinton's DCPS (Distributed Connectionist Production System) is a neural network with complex dynamical properties. Visualization of the energy landscapes of some of its component modules leads to a better intuitive understanding of the model. Three visualization techniques are used in this paper. Analysis of the way energy landscapes change as modules interact during an annealing search suggests ways in which the search dynamics can be controlled, thereby improving the model's performance on difficult match cases."
BoltzCONS : dynamic symbol structures in a connectionist network by David S Touretzky( Book )

3 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unlike certain other neural net models, BoltzCONS represents objects as a collection of superimposed activity patterns rather than as a set of weights. It can therefore create new stuctured objects dynamically, without reliance on iterative training procedures, without rehearsal of previously learned patterns, and without resorting to grandmother cells."
Rules and maps II : recent progress in connectionist symbol processing by David S Touretzky( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "This report contains three papers on symbol processing in connectionist networks. The first two, 'A Computational Basis for Phonology' and 'Rationale for Many Maps' Phonology Machine, ' present the latest results of our ongoing project to develop a connectionist explanation for the regularities and peculiarities of human phonological behavior. The third paper, 'Rule Representations in a Connectionist Chunker, ' introduces a new rule chunking architecture based on competitive learning, and compares its performance with that of a backpropagation-based chunker. Earlier work in these areas was described in report CMU-CS-89-158."
Inheritance theory and networks with roles by Richmond H Thomason( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Restricted networks of this sort are less expressive than first order logic; like all inheritance systems, they constitute a sort of weak logic founded on path-based reasoning, On the other hand, their rules of inference and resulting proofs are substantially more complex than what one finds in simple IS-A hierarchies; the latter use purely linear proof sequences. We show that query answering in networks with roles corresponds to parsing a fragment ofthe network with a context-free grammar whose nonterminals are inference rules and whose terminals are links. Proofs in these systems, although still path-based, take the form of trees rather than chains."
Four capacity models for coarse-coded symbol memories by Ronald Rosenfeld( Book )

5 editions published in 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Coarse-coded symbol memories have appeared in several neural network symbol processing models. In order to determine how these models would scale, one must first have some understanding of the mathematics of coarse-coded representations. We define the general structure of coarse-coded symbol memories, and discuss their strengths and weaknesses. Memory schemes can be characterized by their memory size, symbol-set size and capacity. We derive mathematical relationships between these parameters for various memory schemes, using both analysis and numerical methods. Finally, we compare the predicted capacity of one of the schemes with actual measurements of the coarse-coded working memory of DCPS, Touretzky and Hinton's distributed connectionist production system."
Proceedings of the 1993 Connectionist Models Summer School by Michael C Mozer( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The result of the 1993 Connectionist Models Summer School, the papers in this volume exemplify the tremendous breadth and depth of research underway in the field of neural networks. Although the slant of the summer school has always leaned toward cognitive science and artificial intelligence, the diverse scientific backgrounds and research interests of accepted students and invited faculty reflect the broad spectrum of areas contributing to neural networks, including artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science, engineering, mathematics, neuroscience, and physics.
