Interpolating between boolean and extremely high noisy patterns through Minimal Dense Associative Memories

2 Dec 2019Francesco AlemannoMartino CentonzeAlberto Fachechi

Recently, Hopfield and Krotov introduced the concept of {\em dense associative memories} [DAM] (close to spin-glasses with $P$-wise interactions in a disordered statistical mechanical jargon): they proved a number of remarkable features these networks share and suggested their use to (partially) explain the success of the new generation of Artificial Intelligence. Thanks to a remarkable ante-litteram analysis by Baldi \& Venkatesh, among these properties, it is known these networks can handle a maximal amount of stored patterns $K$ scaling as $K \sim N^{P-1}$.\\ In this paper, once introduced a {\em minimal dense associative network} as one of the most elementary cost-functions falling in this class of DAM, we sacrifice this high-load regime -namely we force the storage of {\em solely} a linear amount of patterns, i.e. $K = \alpha N$ (with $\alpha>0$)- to prove that, in this regime, these networks can correctly perform pattern recognition even if pattern signal is $O(1)$ and is embedded in a sea of noise $O(\sqrt{N})$, also in the large $N$ limit...
