Associative Learning in Hierarchical Self Organizing Learning Arrays
In this paper we introduce feedback based associative learning in self-organized learning arrays (SOLAR). SOLAR structures are hierarchically organized and have the ability to classify patterns in a network of sparsely connected neurons. These neurons may define their own functions and select their interconnections locally, thus satisfying some of the requirements for biologically plausible intelligent structures. Feed-forward processing is used to make necessary correlations and learn the input patterns. Associations between neuron inputs are used to generate feedback signals. These feedback signals, when propagated to the associated inputs, can establish the expected input values. This can be used for hetero and auto associative learning and pattern recognition.
