preview of the book

If you would like a gentle introduction to machine learning, this reading group is for you. There is some mathematical content, but don't let this put you off. We will work through the material slowly together. The book also gives good intuitive glosses. If you are interesting in joining the group, please send me an email to Mark Sprevak and he will add you to the email list.

Integrative Physiology
Panoramic views into higher visual processing in the mouse
Spencer Smith, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA
Monday 26th September 2016
1 pm, Gaddum Lecture Theatre, 1 George Square

Abstract: Complex visual processing, such as that involved in visual navigation, remains a challenge for even state-of-the-art algorithms and supercomputers. By contrast, mice expertly navigate complex environments using a very small mammalian brain that runs on less than 1 watt of power. To explore the computational properties of this circuitry, we are benchmarking higher visual processing in mice using psychophysics, and developing new multiphoton imaging technology to explore population coding in multiple higher visual areas simultaneously. I will share new and emerging evidence of high performance visual processing in mice, and some early insights into functional development and population coding in higher visual areas.
Host: Ian Duguid
