Numenta Research Meeting - June 8, 2020

Ares Fisher discusses dendrites in machine learning and reviews the paper “Improved Expressivity Through Dendritic Neural Networks” by Wu et al.


This one was quite heavy for me. Still very interesting. Thanks.

@afiser, at 1h20m you wonder about making complex functions by combining ReLU activation functions. Here is a great video that explains how to combine 8 neurons with ReLU activation functions into a sinusoide. (The start of the video gives an introduction to the ReLU, but I skipped ahead).
