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 ...
Can a biologically-plausible hierarchy e ectively replace face detection, alignment, and recognition pipelines?
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), arXiv, 2014-03-27)
The standard approach to unconstrained face recognition in natural photographs is via a detection, alignment, recognition pipeline. While that approach has achieved impressive results, there are several reasons to be ...
Representation Learning in Sensory Cortex: a theory
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), 2014-11-14)
We review and apply a computational theory of the feedforward path of the ventral stream in visual cortex based on the hypothesis that its main function is the encoding of invariant representations of images. A key ...
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 ...
