On memory capacity of the Probabilistic Logic Neuron network

  • 17 Accesses

In this paper, the memory capacity of Probabilistic Logic Neuron (PLN) network is discussed. We obtain two main results: (1) the method for constructing a PLN network with a given memory capacity; (2) the relationship between the memory capacity and the size of a PLN network. We show that the memory capacity of a PLN network depends on not only the number of input ports of its element but also the number of elements themselves. The results provide a new method for designing a PLN network.
