Abstract

The Helmholtz machine is a new unsupervised learning architecture that uses top-down connections to build probability density models of input and bottom-up connections to build inverses to those models. The wake-sleep learning algorithm for the machine involves just the purely local delta rule. This paper suggests a number of different varieties of Helmholtz machines, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. and relates them to cortical information processing.
