I’ve heard Jeff says that a pattern is detected by 8-15 synapses.
Also that the synapses has to be close to each other and be activated in approximate the same time. Detecting patterns will be physically constrained i.e. reusing synapses for other patterns OR having synapses further away act as a pattern (SDR is not constrained this way)
My question is : On average a 10k connections neuron reacts/detects to how many PATTERNs ?
Second question: if 10% of the synapses are proximal , does the neuron react on the SUM /cummulative/ of the signal on those synapses OR on the PATTERN of it.
A SDR union would probably allow 10-100 patterns.
