BI 059 Wolfgang Maass: How Do Brains Compute?

00:00 / 01:00:06

In this second part of my discussion with Wolfgang (check out the first part), we talk about spiking neural networks in general, principles of brain computation he finds promising for implementing better network models, and we quickly overview some of his recent work on using these principles to build models with biologically plausible learning mechanisms, a spiking network analog of the well-known LSTM recurrent network, and meta-learning using reservoir computing.

Recently I was interviewed on Ginger Campbell’s podcast Brain Science.

You can hear more about me, the show, and a bit about deep learning and how it relates to neuroscience if you’d like.
