Storage capacity of ultrametric committee machines

Neirotti, J.P. (2014). Storage capacity of ultrametric committee machines. Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical, 47 (6),


The problem of computing the storage capacity of a feed-forward network, with L hidden layers, N inputs, and K units in the first hidden layer, is analyzed using techniques from statistical mechanics. We found that the storage capacity strongly depends on the network architecture αc ∼ (log K)1-1/2L and that the number of units K limits the number of possible hidden layers L through the relationship 2L - 1 < 2log K.
