Unsupervised learning of clutter-resistant visual representations from natural videos
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), arXiv, 2015-04-27)
Populations of neurons in inferotemporal cortex (IT) maintain an explicit code for object identity that also tolerates transformations of object appearance e.g., position, scale, viewing angle [1, 2, 3]. Though the learning ...
The Invariance Hypothesis Implies Domain-Specific Regions in Visual Cortex
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), bioRxiv, 2015-04-26)
Is visual cortex made up of general-purpose information processing machinery, or does it consist of a collection of specialized modules? If prior knowledge, acquired from learning a set of objects is only transferable to ...
Learning Real and Boolean Functions: When Is Deep Better Than Shallow
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), arXiv, 2016-03-08)
We describe computational tasks - especially in vision - that correspond to compositional/hierarchical functions. While the universal approximation property holds both for hierarchical and shallow networks, we prove that ...
View-tolerant face recognition and Hebbian learning imply mirror-symmetric neural tuning to head orientation
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), arXiv, 2016-06-03)
The primate brain contains a hierarchy of visual areas, dubbed the ventral stream, which rapidly computes object representations that are both specific for object identity and relatively robust against identity-preserving ...
