The Baldwin Effect on the Evolution of Associative Memory
We apply genetic algorithms to the Hopfield model of associative memory. Previously, we reported that a genetic algorithm evolves a network with random synaptic weights to store eventually a set of random patterns. In this paper, we show how the Baldwin effect on the evolution enhances the storage capacity.
