    • Bidirectional Learning in Recurrent Neural Networks Using Equilibrium Propagation 

      Khan, Ahmed Faraz (University of Waterloo, 2018-09-26)
      Neurobiologically-plausible learning algorithms for recurrent neural networks that can perform supervised learning are a neglected area of study. Equilibrium propagation is a recent synthesis of several ideas in biological ...
    • Biological Plausibility in Modern Hopfield Networks 

      Snow, Mallory (University of Waterloo, 2022-12-19)
      Modern Hopfield Networks (HNs) have the ability to store a large number of target memories (e.g. binary patterns) and then recall a memory in its entirety when prompted by a sub-set or perturbed version of it; in this ...
    • Biologically Plausible Neural Learning using Symmetric Predictive Estimators 

      Xu, David (University of Waterloo, 2016-08-04)
      A predictive estimator (PE) is a neural microcircuit hypothesized to explain how the brain processes certain types of information. They participate in a hierarchy, passing predictions to lower layers, which send back ...
    • The Computational Advantages of Intrinsic Plasticity in Neural Networks 

      Shaw, Nolan (University of Waterloo, 2019-10-17)
      In this work, I study the relationship between a local, intrinsic update mechanism and a synaptic, error-based learning mechanism in ANNs. I present a local intrinsic rule that I developed, dubbed IP, that was inspired by ...
    • Decay Makes Supervised Predictive Coding Generative 

      Sun, Wei (University of Waterloo, 2020-08-19)
      Predictive Coding is a hierarchical model of neural computation that approximates backpropagation using only local computations and local learning rules. An important aspect of Predictive Coding is the presence of feedback ...
    • Learning-Free Methods for Goal Conditioned Reinforcement Learning from Images 

      Van de Kleut, Alexander (University of Waterloo, 2021-04-27)
      We are interested in training goal-conditioned reinforcement learning agents to reach arbitrary goals specified as images. In order to make our agent fully general, we provide the agent with only images of the environment ...
