# Hopfield network/Origins

## Origins of the Network

editIsing model of a neural network as a memory model is first proposed by William A. Little in 1974,^{[1]} which is acknowledged by Hopfield in his 1982 paper.^{[2]} Networks with continuous dynamics were developed by Hopfield in his 1984 paper.^{[3]} A major advance in memory storage capacity was developed by Krotov and Hopfield in 2016^{[4]} through a change in network dynamics and energy function. This idea was further extended by Demircigil and collaborators in 2017.^{[5]}

The continuous dynamics of large memory capacity models was developed in a series of papers between 2016 and 2020.^{[4]}^{[6]}
^{[7]} Large memory storage capacity Hopfield Networks are now called Dense Associative Memories or modern Hopfield networks.

## Learning Task

edit- Explain the role of the Energy Function for the convergence of the Hopfield networks and the recognition of trained input data for the Hopfield network.
