A robust bio-inspired approach to event-driven object recognition

We propose a neuromimetic architecture able to perform online pattern recognition. To achieve this, we extended the existing event-based algorithm from Lagorce et al (2017) which introduced novel spatio-temporal features: time-surfaces. Built from …

An adaptive homeostatic algorithm for the unsupervised learning of visual features

The formation of structure in the visual system, that is, of the connections between cells within neural populations, is by large an unsupervised learning process: the emergence of this architecture is mostly self-organized. In the primary visual …

Role of homeostasis in learning sparse representations

Neurons in the input layer of primary visual cortex in primates develop edge-like receptive fields. One approach to understanding the emergence of this response is to state that neural activity has to efficiently represent sensory data with respect …
