Improved robustness of reinforcement learning policies upon conversion to spiking neuronal network platforms applied to Atari Breakout game.

Devdhar Patel, Hananel Hazan, Daniel J Saunders, Hava T Siegelmann, Robert Kozma,

Deep Reinforcement Learning (RL) demonstrates excellent performance on tasks that can be solved by trained policy. It plays a dominant role among cutting-edge machine learning approaches using multi-layer Neural networks (NNs). At the same time, Deep RL suffers from high sensitivity to noisy, incomplete, and misleading input data. Following biological ... Read more >>

Locally connected spiking neural networks for unsupervised feature learning.

Daniel J Saunders, Devdhar Patel, Hananel Hazan, Hava T Siegelmann, Robert Kozma,

In recent years, spiking neural networks (SNNs) have demonstrated great success in completing various machine learning tasks. We introduce a method for learning image features with locally connected layers in SNNs using a spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP) rule. In our approach, sub-networks compete via inhibitory interactions to learn features from different ... Read more >>

Direct measurement of the system latency of gaze-contingent displays.

Daniel R Saunders, Russell L Woods,

Gaze-contingent displays combine a display device with an eyetracking system to rapidly update an image on the basis of the measured eye position. All such systems have a delay, the system latency, between a change in gaze location and the related change in the display. The system latency is the ... Read more >>

Trajectory prediction of saccadic eye movements using a compressed exponential model.

Peng Han, Daniel R Saunders, Russell L Woods, Gang Luo,

Gaze-contingent display paradigms play an important role in vision research. The time delay due to data transmission from eye tracker to monitor may lead to a misalignment between the gaze direction and image manipulation during eye movements, and therefore compromise the contingency. We present a method to reduce this misalignment ... Read more >>
