A Bayesian account of learning and generalising representations in the brain

Abstract:

Without learning we would be limited to a set of preprogrammed behaviours. While that may be acceptable for flies, it does not provide the basis for adaptive or intelligent behaviours familiar to humans. Learning, then, is one of the crucial components of brain operation. Learning, however, takes time. Thus, the key to adaptive behaviour is learning to systematically generalise; that is, have learned knowledge that can be flexibly recombined to understand any world in front of you. This th...
