Cognitive coding in the hippocampal-entorhinal system – Dr Christian Doeller, Kavli Institute, NTNU Trondheim, Norway & Donders Institute, RU Nijmegen, the Netherlands)

May 19 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

The fundamental question in cognitive neuroscience — what are the key neural coding principles underlying higher-level cognition in humans — still remains largely unanswered. In my long-term attempt to tackle this question, I use human memory and the neural population code for space provided by grid and place cells as a model system. I will present evidence from fMRI, MEG and virtual reality experiments for cognitive coding mechanisms in the hippocampal-entorhinal system, such as continuous coding of virtual and mentally…

On Different Distances Between Distributions and Generative Adversarial Networks – Martin Arjovsky

May 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Generative adversarial networks (GANs) are notoriously difficult to train. At the core of it, we show that these problems arise naturally when trying to learn distributions whose support lie in low dimensional manifolds. We show how these problems are consequences of trying to optimize the classical divergences (KL, JSD, etc) between our real and data distribution, and that these are symptoms of a more general phenomenon, pointing towards the inefficacy of the usual divergences in certain settings. After that, we…
