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 ...
How Important is Weight Symmetry in Backpropagation?
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), arXiv, 2015-11-29)
Gradient backpropagation (BP) requires symmetric feedforward and feedback connections—the same weights must be used for forward and backward passes. This “weight transport problem”  is thought to be one of the main ...
