Probabilistic Interpretation of Population Codes
We present a general encoding-decoding framework for interpreting the activity of a population of units. A standard population code interpretation method, the Poisson model, start...

Salient Contour Extraction by Temporal Binding in a Cortically-based Network
It has been suggested that long-range intrinsic connections in striate cortex may play a role in contour extraction (Gilbert et al., 1996). A number of recent physiological and ps...

Combining Neural Networks and Context-Driven Search for On-Line, Printed Handwriting Recognition in the Newton
While on-line handwriting recognition is an area of long-standing and ongoing research, the recent emergence of portable, pen-based computers has focused urgent attention on usabl...

Effective Training of a Neural Network Character Classifier for Word Recognition
We have combined an artificial neural network (ANN) character classifier with context-driven search over character segmentation, word segmentation, and word recognition hypotheses...

Interpreting Images by Propagating Bayesian Beliefs
A central theme of computational vision research has been the realization that reliable estimation of local scene properties requires propagating measurements across the image. Ma...

Early Brain Damage
Optimal Brain Damage (OBD) is a method for reducing the number of weights in a neural network. OBD estimates the increase in cost function if weights are pruned and is a valid app...

A Model of Recurrent Interactions in Primary Visual Cortex
A general feature of the cerebral cortex is its massive interconnectivity-ithas been estimatedanatomically 15 that cortical neurons receive on the order of 10,000 synapses, the ma...

Solving the Ill-Conditioning in Neural Network Learning
Abstract. In this paper we investigate the feed-forward learning problem. The well-known ill-conditioning which is present in most feed-forward learning problems is shown to be the...

Reinforcement Learning for Dynamic Channel Allocation in Cellular Telephone Systems
In cellular telephone systems, an important problem is to dynamically allocate the communication resource channels so as to maximize service in a stochastic caller environment. Th...
