Abstract:

Ackley, Hinton and Sejnowski have recently proposed an algorithm, named a Boltzmann Machine, which is capable of learning to recognize the underlying structure in a set of patterns presented to it. The main purposes of this memorandum are to introduce Boltzmann Machines to those who are not familiar with them to outline how Boltzmann Machines may prove useful in the knowledge acquisition problem in artificial intelligence to report some new results for a model problem and to sketch out the relationship between Boltzmann Machines and the spin-glass problem.
