Welcome to my site. I write about things that catch my curiosity or that I am passionate about. Currently I am a research engineer at MIT working on autonomous vehicle research, specifically how humans and AI systems can interact. I suppose you could say the ‘cognitive science of self driving cars’. I am generally interested in all things about minds, brains, and computers.
Brains are comprised of networks of neurons connected by synapses, and these networks have greater computational properties than the neurons and synapses themselves. In this post, I am going to talk about a class of neural networks which I think are fascinating: attractor networks. These are recurrent neural networks with attractor states; these states and … Continue reading “Attractor Networks, (A bit of) Computational Neuroscience Part III”
