    This paper presents an algorithm which realizes fast search for the solutions of combinatorial optimization problems with parallel digital computers. With the standard weight matrices designed for combinatorial optimization, many iterations are required before convergence to a quasioptimal solution even when many digital processors can be used in parallel. By removing the components of the eigenve... View full abstract»

    A learning machine-or a model-is usually trained by minimizing a given criterion (the expectation of the cost function), measuring the discrepancy between the model output and the desired output. As is already well known, the choice of the cost function has a profound impact on the probabilistic interpretation of the output of the model, after training. In this work, we use the calculus of variati... View full abstract»

    A recently defined energy function which leads to a self-organizing map is used as a foundation for an asynchronous neural-network algorithm. We generalize the existing stochastic gradient approach to an asynchronous parallel stochastic gradient method for generating a topological map on a distributed computer system (MIMD). A convergence proof is presented and simulation results on a set of probl... View full abstract»

The approach is applied to a problem involving separation of metallic wear debris particles from air bubbles. This problem arises in an optical-based system for determination of mechanical wear. This paper focuses on distinguishing debris particles suspended... View full abstract»

    We present an iterative inversion (II) approach to blind source separation (BSS). It consists of a quasi-Newton method for the resolution of an estimating equation obtained from the implicit inversion of a robust estimate of the mixing system. The resulting learning rule includes several existing algorithms for BSS as particular cases giving them a novel and unified interpretation. It also provide... View full abstract»

    Autoassociations of spatio-temporal sequences have been discussed by a number of authors. We propose a mechanism for storing and retrieving pairs of spatio-temporal sequences with the network architecture of the standard bidirectional associative memory (BAM), thereby achieving heteroassociations of spatio-temporal sequences.

    Given an undirected graph with weights on the vertices, the maximum weight clique problem (MWCP) is to find a subset of mutually adjacent vertices (a clique) having the largest total weight. This is a generalization of the problem of finding the maximum cardinality clique of an unweighted graph, which is the special case of the MWCP when all vertex weights are equal. The problem is NP-hard for arb... View full abstract»

    Within the last years various principal component analysis (PCA) algorithms have been proposed. In this paper we use a general framework to describe those PCA algorithms which are based on Hebbian learning. For an important subset of these algorithms, the local algorithms, we fully describe their equilibria, where all lateral connections are set to zero and their local stability. We show how the p...

    The role of bootstrap is highlighted for nonlinear discriminant analysis using a feedforward neural network model. Statistical techniques are formulated in terms of the principle of the likelihood of a neural-network model when the data consist of ungrouped binary responses and a set of predictor variables. We illustrate that the information criterion based on the bootstrap method is shown to be f... View full abstract»

    For the shape from shading problem, it is known that most real images usually contain specular components and are affected by unknown reflectivity. In the paper, these limitations are addressed and a neural-based specular reflectance model is proposed. The idea of this method is to optimize a proper specular model by learning the parameters of a radial basis function network and to recover the obj... View full abstract»

    To reduce the memory requirements and the computation cost, many algorithms have been developed that perform nearest neighbor classification using only a small number of representative samples obtained from the training set. We call the classification model underlying all these algorithms as Voronoi networks (Vnets). We analyze the generalization capabilities of these networks by bounding the gene... View full abstract»
