It would be reasonable to expect this if the single-layer learning algorithm discovered a representation that captures statistical regularities of the layer’s input. PCA and the standard variants of ICA requiring as many causes as signals seem inappropriate because they generally do not make sense in the so-called overcomplete case, where the number of outputs of the layer is greater than the number of its inputs. This suggests looking in the direction of extensions of ICA to deal with the overcomplete case [78, 87, 115, 184], as well as algorithms related to PCA and ICA, such as auto-encoders and RBMs, which can be applied in the overcomplete case.

First of all it is useful in learning algorithms, to obtain an estimator of the log-likelihood gradient. Second, inspection of examples generated from the model is useful to get an idea of what the model has captured or not captured about the data distribution. 1. Gibbs sampling in fully connected Boltzmann Machines is slow because there are as many sub-steps in the Gibbs chain as there are units in the network. On the other hand, the factorization enjoyed by RBMs brings two benefits: first we do not need to sample in the positive phase because the free energy (and therefore its gradient) is computed analytically; second, the set of variables in (x, h) can be sampled in two sub-steps in each step of the Gibbs chain.

The only interaction terms are between a hidden unit and a visible unit, but not between units of the same layer. This form of model was first introduced under the name of Harmonium [178], and learning algorithms (beyond the ones for Boltzmann Machines) were 56 Energy-Based Models and Boltzmann Machines discussed in [51]. Empirically demonstrated and efficient learning algorithms and variants were proposed more recently [31, 70, 200]. 13) can be applied with β(x) = b x and γi (x, hi ) = −hi (ci + Wi x), where Wi is the row vector corresponding to the ith row of W .
