Simultaneous measurement of neural rhythms and spikes across five brain areas reveals how propofol induces unconsciousness. Read the eLife publication about this discovery with authors including CBMM Research Collaborator Prof. Emery N. Brown.
Computer models that mimic humans’ extraordinary hearing abilities could improve treatments for hearing loss. MIT neuroscientist Josh McDermott hopes to develop computational models that can perform sophisticated auditory tasks as well as the human brain.
Prof. Poggio will give a talk at the Bower Award for Neural Networks for Machine Learning symposium honoring Kunihiko Fukushima on April 28, 2021 at 9:00AM ET. Click to see full list of speakers and register for the webinar.
This new book introduces the neuroscientific study of neuronal computations in visual cortex alongside of the psychological understanding of visual cognition and the burgeoning field of biologically-inspired artificial intelligence.
CBMM's Director Tomaso Poggio has been selected as a panelist for the upcoming webinar series on March 24, 2021 hosted by the Italian Embassy and partnering with the National Science Foundation exploring artificial inteligence.
Figure 1: Typical double descent of the condition number (y axis) of a random data matrixdistributed asN(0,1): the condition number is worse whenn=d, better ifn > d(on the rightofn=d) and also better ifn < d(on the left ofn=d).
An artificial intelligence (AI) network developed by Google AI offshoot DeepMind has made a gargantuan leap in solving one of biology’s grandest challenges — determining a protein’s 3D shape from its amino-acid sequence.
Recent advances give theoretical insight into why deep learning networks are successful. CBMM Director Tomaso Poggio, postdoc Andrzej Banburski and graduate student Qianli Liao look into the "black box" of deep learning to provide insights.
The RSS Keynote on July 15 was delivered by Josh Tenenbaum, Professor of Computational Cognitive Science at MIT BCS, CSAIL. Titled “It’s all in your head: Intuitive physics, planning, and problem-solving in brains, minds and machines”.
