Computational experiments with two neuro-inspired abstractions: Hebbian learning and spike timing information

Seminar: Redwood Seminar | June 14 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 560 Evans Hall


Upamanyu Madhow, UCSB

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


In this talk, we discuss early work on two different neuro-inspired computational abstractions. In the first, we investigate flavors of competitive Hebbian learning for bottom-up training of deep convolutional neural networks. The resulting sparse neural codes are competitive with layered autoencoders on standard image datasets. Unlike standard training based on optimizing a cost function, our...   More >
