The case against distributed representations: Lack of evidence

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (4):476-477 (2000)
Abstract
We focus on two components of Page's argument in favour of localist representations in connectionist networks: First, we take issue with the claim that localist representations can give rise to generalisation and show that whenever generalisation occurs, distributed representations are involved. Second, we counter the alleged shortcomings of distributed representations and show that their properties are preferable to those of localist approaches.
