Factor Fields

Nobody knows how the brain works, but as engineers we often envy its capabilities. The earliest reference to the brain was found in a papyrus written in the 17th century B.C., and many theories about the brain have been postulated since then. In recent decades neuroscience has progressed at an unprecedented rate and our scientific "windows into the brain" have become more and more sophisticated. Despite this progress, our success in building computational models of the brain is still very limited. We have repeatedly been surprised at how different brains and computers are.

In this talk I present a simple model for cortical computation. With a combination of simple mechanisms we can demonstrate computational abilities that exhibit some interesting dynamics that also appear to occur in brains.
