Using the “precision technique” To unravel the working principle of the brain The human brain is attracting attention from various fields, now the hottest research subject. Neuroengineering is a research area aiming to elucidate the phenomena of the cranial nervous system using engineering technology. The Jimbo laboratory who works early on this field and also…

## Pattern recognition

What is pattern recognition? Pattern recognition is the process of associating an observed pattern with one of predefined concepts (classes). For example, if you are to recognize a number, it is processing to associate a given image (pattern) with one of 0 to 9. This kind of human-friendly processing is also very difficult for machines…

## Graphical network models

I will talk about designing a probabilistic model using a graphical model several times from this time. Compared with conventional statistical models, one of the things that learn machine learning as machine learning is the complexity of the phenomena to be handled. In order to analyze complex phenomena, a complicated model corresponding to it is…

## computational neuroscience

Machine Learning Advent Calendar 2012 The seventh day is the field of computational neuroscience, among the neuroscience, which is commonly referred to as brain science. In academic introductory books, I first learn the neural cell mechanism of the brain and a mathematical model of many neurons, but leave them to a good book of reference…

## The neural network is a model

The neural network is a model expressed by a mathematical formula devised based on the signal transmission mechanism of neuron synapse which is a human brain cell. Neural network theory was invented in 1943 by American neurophysiologists and mathematicians, Warren McCulloch and Walter Pitz, and was called a formal neuron. A neural network takes a…

## CANN 2012 : 22nd International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks

ICANN 2012 will feature two main tracks: Brain inspired computing and Machine learning research, with strong cross-disciplinary interactions and applications. All research fields dealing with Neural Networks will be present at the Conference with emphasis on “Neural Coding”, “Decision Making” and “Unsupervised Learning”. A non-exhaustive list of topics includes: Neural network theory & models Computational…
