Architectures for self-learning neural network modules
The pRAM (probabilistic RAM) models the non-linear and stochastic features found in biological neurons. The pRAM is realisable in hardware and the fourth generation VLSI pRAM chip is described here. This chip contains 256 pRAM neurons and learning algorithms are built into the hardware. Several such chips can be connected together to form larger nets.
