Welcome to my site. I write about things that catch my curiosity or that I am passionate about. Currently I am a research associate 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 — of course, there is a lot more to it than that, but this captures some of the essence of the brain. A nice property of networks of neurons is that they have greater computational properties than the neurons and synapses themselves. In this post, … Continue reading “Attractor Networks, (A bit of) Computational Neuroscience Part III”
