Machine learning

By
Level
Beginner

These courses begin with the conceptual basics of machine learning and then move on to some Python-based applications of popular supervised learning algorithms to neuroscience data.  This is followed by a series of lectures that explore the history and applications of deep learning, ending with a presentation on the potential of deep learning for neuroscience applications/mis-applications.

Dr. Guangyu Robert Yang describes how Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) trained with machine learning techniques on cognitive tasks have become a widely accepted tool for neuroscientists. In comparison to traditional computational models in neuroscience, RNNs can offer substantial advantages at explaining complex behavior and neural activity patterns. Their use allows rapid generation of mechanistic hypotheses for cognitive computations. RNNs further provide a natural way to flexibly combine bottom-up biological knowledge with top-down computational goals into network models. However, early works of this approach are faced with fundamental challenges. In this talk, Dr. Guangyu Robert Yang discusses some of these challenges, and several recent steps that we took to partly address them and to build next-generation RNN models for cognitive neuroscience.​
