Duration: 30 minutes
Location: CAB G51
Speaker: Florian Jug
In this Mittagsseminar I would like to share with you my motivation for studying neural computation on a neuronal level. During the talk I will take you on a trip that sensitizes you for the kind of things we do know about brains, and the kind of things we have not yet understood. We will dive deep inside the structure of brains where we will finally arrive at the level of local cell interactions in cerebral cortex. There we can find interaction dynamics between neurons that are often called "soft winner-take-all" (WTA). Recently we have made progress understanding the neural implementability of these WTA dynamics, and you will see how we can build biologically plausible neural networks that learn to become WTA networks. But what are WTAs for? How would a brain, full of such WTA moduls, solve real-world problems? Nobody knows a definitive answer to these questions, but towards the end of my talk I would like to briefly mention a promising paradigm.
