Towards biologically plausible deep learning

Thursday 16th | 15:10 - 15:40 | Theatre 19

Keywords defining the session:

- Deep learning

- Neuroscience

- Psychology


The recent success of deep structured learning in areas as image and speech recognition, and problem solving in general, has made many people wonder if neural networks based artificial intelligence has surpassed the capabilities of humans intelligence in these specific applications. Others, however, argue that the more advanced network topologies that have emerged in the recent years are merely more sophisticated statistical techniques for fitting functions. In this session we’ll make a review of where deep learning currently stands, what are the key present limitations and challenges, and how neuroscience and psychology can bring us closer to human-level intelligence.
