In this special edition we focus on the function of lateral connections (connections between neurons within a level). Long-range lateral connections are ubiquitous in the neocortex and cannot be explained by pure feedforward models. We have invited researchers from the Allen Institute for Brain Science to discuss their recently published paper on modeling these connections.
Brains@Bay Meetups are designed to bring together the fields of neuroscience and artificial intelligence. Speakers for this meetup have been selected from each discipline to provide unique views of the topic of Predictive Processing.
Christy Maver, VP Marketing, sits down with Jeff Hawkins, Co-Founder, and Subutai Ahmad, VP Research, and asks them to reflect on the previous year while making predictions about the coming decade.
Welcome to another session of Brains@Bay! This time we will be talking about Hebbian Learning, the main mechanism used by the brain to learn new experiences.
We have 4 presentations scheduled for this meetup that discuss brain-inspired machine learning algorithms related to sparse representations in neural networks.
