(20 points) In class, we proved that the Hopfield network algorithm converges in a finite number of steps when every edge in the graph has a weight of 1. The proof worked by asking how the energy changed when the algorithm changed the state of a node v by applying the update rule. We showed that the only edges that contributed to the change in energy were incident on v . We used this fact to show that the change in energy must be negative. Since all edge weights are 1, the energy must go down by a value of at least 1. We established a lower bound on the energy to conclude that the number of steps is finite. Generalise the proof when every edge in the graph has a positive edge weight. You may make some reasonable assumptions about the precision with which we represent real numbers. (Hint: Consider the case when every edge weight is a positive integer.) 2. (10 points) Consider the precision-recall curve for an algorithm such as SinkSource. During cross validation, SinkSource computes a score between 0 and 1 for every positive and every negative example. To compute the precision-recall curve, we vary a threshold t monotonically from 1 to 0. At every value of t , we compute the precision and recall. Do either or both of, we compute the precision and recall....
