Title : Towards Dynamic Capsule Networks: How Neuroscience Can Help AI

Date & Time : 19 February (Wednesday)  4:00 PM

Venue : MMCR, EE Dept

Abstract :

The recently introduced Capsule Network (CapsNet) formalism has many unique features. We describe these and point out some shortfalls. Recent work from our group, addressing some of these, has improved the performance of CapsNets. We conclude by describing a new formalism that incorporates some of the unique features of mammalian sensory systems. These networks could provide real-time sensory processing needed for autonomous vehicles.
