Recurrent Exponential-Family Harmoniums without Backprop-Through-Time

19 May 2016Joseph G. MakinBenjamin K. DichterPhilip N. Sabes

Exponential-family harmoniums (EFHs), which extend restricted Boltzmann machines (RBMs) from Bernoulli random variables to other exponential families (Welling et al., 2005), are generative models that can be trained with unsupervised-learning techniques, like contrastive divergence (Hinton et al. 2006; Hinton, 2002), as density estimators for static data. Methods for extending RBMs--and likewise EFHs--to data with temporal dependencies have been proposed previously (Sutskever and Hinton, 2007; Sutskever et al., 2009), the learning procedure being validated by qualitative assessment of the generative model...
