A neural network model is proposed with the ability to extract abstract numerical representation from visual input. It simulates properties of a number detection system which is hypothesized to underlie simple language-independent numerical abilities. The network has three layers where the first layer computes the sum of the nearest neighbour inputs. The first layer is also augmented with multiplicative gating and gradient tonic activation which prevents interference. The second layer… CONTINUE READING
