A RAM-based auto-associative neural network is described which has several desirable properties, including high storage capacity and absence of minima during recall. The system is implemented as a set of generalising RAM (GRAM) type nodes. The generalisation procedure is described, and comparisons with other types of autoassociator are drawn.
