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 ...
Fast, invariant representation for human action in the visual system
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), arXiv, 2016-01-06)
The ability to recognize the actions of others from visual input is essential to humans' daily lives. The neural computations underlying action recognition, however, are still poorly understood. We use magnetoencephalography ...
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 ...
Do You See What I Mean? Visual Resolution of Linguistic Ambiguities
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), arXiv, 2016-06-10)
Understanding language goes hand in hand with the ability to integrate complex contextual information obtained via perception. In this work, we present a novel task for grounded language understanding: disambiguating a ...
