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 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. Keywords: Cognitive phonology; Linguistics; Many-maps model; Voice communication. (JG)
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 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."
Connectionism and compositional semantics by David S Touretzky( Book )
3 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Abstract: "Quite a few interesting experiments have been done applying neural networks to natural language tasks. Without detracting from the value of these early investigations, this paper argues that current neural network architectures are too weak to solve anything but toy language problems. Their downfall is the need for 'dynamic inference, ' in which several pieces of information not previously seen together are dynamically combined to derive the meaning of a novel input. The first half of the paper defines a hierarchy of classes of connectionist models, from categorizers and associative memories to pattern transformers and dynamic inferencers. Some well-known connectionist models that deal with natural language are shown to be either categorizers or pattern transformers. The second half examines in detail a particular natural language problem: prepositional phrase attachment. Attaching a PP to an NP changes its meaning, thereby influencing other attachments. So PP attachment requires compositional semantics, and compositionality in non-toy domains requires dynamic inference
Visualizing evaluation in applicative languages by David S Touretzky( Book )
5 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 8 libraries worldwide
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."
A connectionist implementation of cognitive phonology by Deirdre Wheeler( Book )
4 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 8 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."
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 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 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.
