Exponential Pattern Retrieval Capacity with Non-Binary Associative Memory

We consider the problem of neural association for a network of non-binary neurons. Here, the task is to recall a previously memorized pattern from its noisy version using a network of neurons whose states assume values from a finite number of non-negative integer levels. Prior works in this area consider storing a finite number of purely random patterns, and have shown that the pattern retrieval capacities (maximum number of patterns that can be memorized) scale only linearly with the number of neurons in the network.
