What we're about

Welcome to our meetup on brain-inspired machine learning algorithms! Our main goal is to foster the study and development of machine learning algorithms heavily inspired by neuroscience empirical and theoretical research.

• These are the themes already discussed and some examples planned for the following months:


• Jul/2019: Continuous Learning

• Aug/2019: Sparse Representations

• Oct/2019: Hebbian Learning

• May/2020: Predictive processing

• June/2020: Lateral (non-feed forward) connections

• Planned:

Example topics we might cover in the next meetups:

- Structural Plasticity
- Object Representation and Composition
- Sensorimotor Integration
- Neuron Models with Active Dendrites
- Columns and Minicolumns
- Networks Without Backpropagation
(... to continue)
*might be changed or reordered at the community’s decision.

Seats are limited, so please make sure to confirm your attendance as early as possible.

NOTE: The initial meetings are sponsored by Numenta (food, room, Zoom account), but the meetup is not directly affiliated with Numenta. We welcome other sponsors and may move to a different location for some meetings.
