Cortical Learning Algorithms with Predictive Coding for a Systems-Level Cognitive Architecture

This is a quick post to link a poster paper by Ryan McCall, who has experimented with a Predictive-Coding / Cortical Learning Algorithm (PC-CLA) hybrid approach. We found the paper via Ryan writing to the NUPIC theory mailing list. What’s great about the paper is it links to some of… Read More »Cortical Learning Algorithms with Predictive Coding for a Systems-Level Cognitive Architecture

On Predictive Coding and Temporal Pooling

Introduction Predictive Coding (PC) is a popular theory of cortical function within the neuroscience community. There is considerable biological evidence to support the essential concepts (see e.g. “Canonical microcircuits for predictive coding” by Bastos et al). PC describes a method of encoding messages passed between processing units. Specifically, PC states that… Read More »On Predictive Coding and Temporal Pooling
