The definition of the usual Boltzmann machine is extended to allow for neurons with polytomous (multicategory) rather than simply binary responses. Updating rules are defined along with the associated stationary distributions, and an alternating minimization method is described for the purposes of training. Emphasis is placed on the relevance of statistical ideas, including polytomous logistic regression, the iterative proportional fitting procedure and the EM algorithm
