Unsupervised Learning in Reservoir Computing: Modeling Hippocampal Place Cells for Small Mobile Robots

Biological systems (e.g., rats) have efficient and robust localization abilities provided by the so called, place cells, which are found in the hippocampus of rodents and primates (these cells encode locations of the animal’s environment). This work seeks to model these place cells by employing three (biologically plausible) techniques: Reservoir Computing… CONTINUE READING
