Inference and Efficient Coding in Natural Auditory Scenes

Seminar | May 30 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 560 Evans Hall

 Wiktor Mlynarski, MIT

Processing of natural stimuli in sensory systems has been traditionally studied within two theoretical frameworks: probabilistic inference and efficient coding. Probabilistic inference specifies optimal strategies for learning about relevant properties of the environment from local and ambiguous sensory signals. Efficient coding provides a normative approach to study encoding of natural stimuli...   More >
