Abstract

In this paper we present a modified neural network architecture and an algorithm that enables neural networks to learn vectors in accordance to user designed sequences or graph structures. This enables us to use the modified network algorithm to identify, generate or complete specified patterns that are learned in the training phase. The algorithm is based on the idea that neural networks in the human neurocortex represent a distributed memory of sequences that are stored in invariant hierarchical form with associative access. The algorithm was tested on our custom built simulator that supports the usage of our ADT neural network with standard backpropagation and our custom built training algorithms, and it proved to be useful and successful in modelling graphs.
