Parallel strategy for optimal learning in perceptrons

Neirotti, Juan P. (2010). Parallel strategy for optimal learning in perceptrons. Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical, 43 (12), p. 125101.


We developed a parallel strategy for learning optimally specific realizable rules by perceptrons, in an online learning scenario. Our result is a generalization of the Caticha–Kinouchi (CK) algorithm developed for learning a perceptron with a synaptic vector drawn from a uniform distribution over the N-dimensional sphere, so called the typical case. Our method outperforms the CK algorithm in almost all possible situations, failing only in a denumerable set of cases. The algorithm is optimal in the sense that it saturates Bayesian bounds when it succeeds.
