    • Beckman Institute Room 1005

    To understand how the visual brain works in the natural world, we must study cortical neurons. Specifically, we must identify what kinds of information they store, and then relate this information to different types of images. Dr. Ponce will describe how his team uses machine learning to extract visual attributes represented by neurons.
