  • Understanding the Role of Recurrent Connections in Assembly Calculus 

    Rangamani, Akshay; Xie, Yi (Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), 2022-07-06)
    In this note, we explore the role of recurrent connections in Assembly Calculus through a number of experiments conducted on models with and without recurrent connections. We observe that as- semblies can be formed even ...
  • System identification of neural systems: If we got it right, would we know? 

    Han, Yena; Poggio, Tomaso; Cheung, Brian (Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), 2022-07-02)
    Various artificial neural networks developed by engineers have been evaluated as models of the brain, such as the ventral stream in the primate visual cortex. After being trained on large datasets, the network outputs are ...
  • PCA as a defense against some adversaries 

    Aparne, Gupta; Banburski, Andrzej; Poggio, Tomaso (Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), 2022-03-30)
    Neural network classifiers are known to be highly vulnerable to adversarial perturbations in their inputs. Under the hypothesis that adversarial examples lie outside of the sub-manifold of natural images, previous work has ...
