Analysis of the Mean Field Annealing Algorithm for Graph Colouring

Shawe-Taylor, John and Zerovnik, Janez v (1993) Analysis of the Mean Field Annealing Algorithm for Graph Colouring s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


We introduce the Multi State Bitstream Neuron. By replacing the stochastic activation function with stochastic weights the MSBSN is shown to approximate a Generalised Boltzmann Machine. Benchmarks show the algorithm performs as well as the Boltzmann algorithm whilst the MSBSN lends itself to a very compact and fast hardware implementation.
