CBMM Weekly Research Meeting

November 8, 2013 - 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm

There will be a presentation on the Research Thrust 5 “Theories for Intelligence.”
T. Poggio:

Thrust 5:  Theory is the common language between thrusts but it is not a goal in itself.  The CBMM challenge question what is there and m-theory

  • Theory: Invariances reduce sample complexity
  • Algorithm: how the ventral stream may learn/compute invariant features


  • Qianli Liao  – Computational test: algorithm performs well in face verification
  • Joel Leibo – Neuroscience test: algorithm is consistent with physiology of face cells
  • Leslie Valiant – The neuroidal model: modeling how neural circuits are cumulatively learned
