NET Stabilization 2)3)
L. PERSONNAZ et al., who study the learning process, in relation to the network model, write on this topic: "If the learning process is correctly conducted, the energy function of (such) a net takes minimal values precisely for these configurations which have been presented to the net during the learning process." (1988, p.1369).
The learning process thus defines the net: This is equivalent to the "Lern-Phase" in Steinbuch matrixes (but in a more elaborated way).
The authors moreover state: "In other words, the net did compute its synaptic efficiencies in such a way that these configurations that it must memorize are minimal energy stable states,… attractors in the net's space of states." (p.1370).
The net thus reaches the minimal level of entropy production compatible with its specific nature.
