Dynamical Models for Brain Like Computation by Jose C. Principe
The Hopfield network is still today the most widely known example of a brain like dynamical computational model. This talk will present and review recent advances in our understanding of recurrent neural networks to perform computation. The echo state network (ESN), the liquid state machine (LSM) and the Freeman model will be explained to illustrate another character of dynamical models for computation
