Welcome to biologically inspired neural information processing!
Short course description: Review of major Artificial Neural Network paradigms. Analytical discussion of supervised and unsupervised learning. Emphasis on state-of-the-art Hebbian (biologically most plausible) learning paradigms and their relation to information theoretical methods. Applications to data analysis such as pattern recognition, clustering (information discovery), classification, non-linear PCA, independent component analysis, with lots of examples from image and signal processing and other areas.
