The End of the Rainbow
19 January 2018, 5:00 am

The retina is the exposed surface of the brain, so if you think about a pot of gold while looking at a rainbow, then there's one at BOTH ends.

It evolves fast when I work on it, as I get addicted to the problem solving. But I have to take breaks from it if I can pull myself away long enough - otherwise I am up till dawn tapping away on the keys.

I'm having a break from it at the moment actually, but there's an itch to scratch developing again lately   ;D

Yeah, I know what it feels like ;)

In fact, if my wife wasn't here to kick my ass on a daily basis, I think I would just stick to my computer day&night  ;D

the good thing about this is you could read what its doing not like hidden layers in neural networks where its all unlabelled gibberish.

Exactly. I'm targeting the browser. I made a simple UI made of a lot of draggable frames, like a dashboard. You'd use those frames to set up spies and follow what's happening. You can see a demo page here. I like the "dev on the fly" approach!  :D

 O0  Wow, thanks a lot Freddy!

Elfscript is cool. I like the project, and I like the name! :)
It's evolving fast, isn't it?

So Frontal Cortex affects Sensory Cortices, Sensory Cortices affect Frontal Cortex, repeat? What is the purpose of the Frontal Cortex affecting the ex. Visual Cortex? Better recognition accuracy? Higher level concepts/representations? And what is the purpose of the Visual Cortex speaking back to the Frontal Cortex? To improve how its doing its job? Backprop?

I know there's no images in the brain now. I wasn't talking about this though. What I meant was that the neurons that stand for/represent eyes/faces/talking/etc could dim in energy and fade. Why? > Because normally neuron selections/activations in the our brain algorithms go black after activation, where, if they slowly de-activate and get darker slowly, then it draws the search for new input, i.e. new sensory input considers what you were last thinking. Simply put, any activity in the brain should slowly fade away, but not instantly turn black. Do you/s do this?

I think I'll name this language AiDL, in honor of our amazing community. If Freddy greenlights me!

Consider the green light on, I think we would all be honoured  :)

I must set down a proper definition for ElfScript but I tend to be making it up as I go along.  ;D

I'm really excited about korrelan's project.

I’m just getting back up to speed after the holidays...

I'm reading a book called www.DeepLearningBook.org

Good. All information is useful… obviously the more you know the better.  Deepmind is a very cool concept/ architecture but in its present format I personally don’t think it will ever be anything but a useful tool… a narrow AI.  Although the schema is incorrect Deepmind would represent the equivalent of the retina and V1, V2 visual cortices at the moment.

hence mirror-mirror effect to infinity

The frontal cortex is made up of hundreds of sub areas that are self organised according to which other cortex networks/ regions they are tuned to.  So for ocular/ vision for example it basically listens to the patterns in GTP that originated in the visual cortex.  As it learns the patterns it generates its own sparse patterns which eventually feedback to the visual cortex hubs amongst many other areas. Together they eventually reach a kind of equilibrium where the visual cortex’s definitions/ understanding of visual patterns are influenced by the state of the frontal cortex and vice versa. Hundreds of other networks are all doing the same and inter mixing their information in thousands of hubs/ relay points.  This is where internal, ocular, audio, tactile sensory streams are filtered, mixed and matched.

Btw do activated representations ex. in higher layers fade in brightness slowing leaking energy?

Actual images as you understand then never actually get past the retina.  The retina re-encodes the light patterns into a sparse/ compressed temporal representation that is lastly encoded by the retinal ganglion cells before being sent down the optic nerve.  You have approx 150 million light receptors (rods/ cones) in each retina, but only about a million nerve fibres in the optic cord/ nerve that passes the information to your brain. 

When you view a scene/ image for the first time your past visual experience fills in approx 85% of the information you think you are actually seeing.  Then as you move your fovea (hi resolution center) around the scene, focusing on objects you are not certain/ curious about the finer details are filled in.  This is part of how your imagination works, you are able to mentally superimpose visual information on top of what you think you are actually seeing or ‘see’ pictures in your ‘minds eye’.  It’s the main cause of hallucinations and many other mental phenomena like pareidolia and synesthesia.

So no…the patterns that represent what you are looking at don’t actually fade/ dim in the common understanding of the terms but they do loose their initial resolution/ complexity as they are converted into the mental facets your brain requires/ understands.
