Thomas and I discuss the role of recurrence in visual cognition: how brains somehow excel with so few “layers” compared to deep nets, how feedback recurrence can underlie visual reasoning, how LSTM gate-like processing could explain the function of canonical cortical microcircuits, the current limitations of deep learning networks like adversarial examples, and a bit of history in modeling our hierarchical visual system, including his work with the HMAX model and interacting with the deep learning folks as convolutional neural networks were being developed.
