Task-specific Vision DNN Models and Their Relation for Explaining Different Areas of the Visual Cortex
Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) are state-of-the-art models for many vision tasks. We propose an approach to assess the relationship between visual tasks and their task-specific...

Title: Turing's Child Machine: A Deep Learning Model of Neural Development
Turing recognized development’s connection to intelligence when he proposed engineering a ‘child machine’ that becomes intelligent through a developmental process, instead of top-down hand-...

Title: Recurrent computations during visual object perception—investigating within and beyond the primate ventral stream
Recurrent circuits are ubiquitous in the primate ventral stream, that supports core object recognition — primate’s ability to rapidly categorize objects. While...

Abstract: Recent progress in computer vision has led to new unresolved questions about their emergent properties. Understanding the emergent behaviour of computer vision algorithms can fuel the engineering of computer vision and help understand biological intelligence. In this talk, I will discuss...

The place cells of the hippocampus create distinct maps of each context, a process known as hippocampal remapping.  Past work has asked which environmental features determine which map is used, but no consistent answer has been reached. However, this approach has ignored the relevance of context...

Abstract: A fledgling biofoundry is taking shape within the new Biological Design Center at Boston University. The mission of the DAMP (Design, Automation, Manufacturing, and Prototyping) Laboratory is to develop novel biological systems using formal representations of protocols and experiments for...
