CNS 2017 – 26th Annual Computational Neuroscience Meeting
|When||Sat, Jul 15, 2017 — Thu, Jul 20, 2017|
University of Antwerp
|Topic||Learning structure of 3D objects with cortical columns|
Subutai Ahmad, Numenta VP of Research, will present a poster, oral presentation and workshop at this event.
Sunday, July 16 16:00-19:00
Poster: A cortical model for learning complex temporal structure in sensory streams
Tuesday, July 18 10:40-11:00
Talk: Learning structure of 3D objects with cortical columns
In this talk, Subutai will describe a model in which how cortical columns learn 3D sensorimotor models of the world by combining sensory inputs with allocentric location and how cross-columnar connections allow faster inference. This detailed model is consistent with anatomical and physiological evidence.
Thursday, July 20 16:00-16:45
Workshop: Cortical Function: Towards Understanding and Developing Integrative Theories
Subutai will be a presenter in the workshop, “Cortical Function: Towards Understanding and Developing Integrative Theories”. Subutai’s presentation, “Why Do Neurons Have Thousands of Synapses? A Theory of Sequence Learning in Neocortex," will be based on the content in our peer-reviewed paper by the same name.
