We develop two artificial neural network models which use ‘spiking’ neurons to perform recognition and memory tasks. The first task studied is that of recognising spoken words. We present a network built from approximately 1000 biologically plausible integrate-and-fire neurons which was developed as the winning solution to an academic competition posed by John Hopfield and Carlos Brody. The network recognises a vocabulary of ten words, regardless of the speed at which they are spoken (‘time… CONTINUE READING
