Hippocampus and the Episodic confusion (for machine learning)

The standard definitions of Episodic and Semantic Memory hide some important subtleties that impact the development of Machine Learning algorithms for AI (particularly those building Episodic Learning capability). This article explores this issue and provides a context for upcoming articles work to take us a step closer to 'animal-like' machine learning

Learning distant cause and effect using only local and immediate credit assignment

We’ve uploaded a new paper to arXiv presenting our algorithm for biologically-plausible learning of distant cause & effect using only local and immediate credit assignment. This is a big step for us – it ticks almost all our requirements for a general purpose representation. The training regime is unsupervised &… Read More »Learning distant cause and effect using only local and immediate credit assignment
